Photo Coverage: Barry Manilow Unveils 'Manilow Way' on 44th Street!

The City of New York has honored Grammy Award-winning superstar (and Brooklyn native) Barry Manilow with his very own street. In a ceremony performed earlier today, Todd Asher, Deputy Commissioner of the New York City Mayor's Office of Media and Entertainment (and self-professed "Fanilow"), unveiled a new street sign dubbing the West 44th Street at 7th Avenue "MANILOW WAY." The corner is mere steps from the St. James Theatre (246 West 44th Street) where Manilow began a special Broadway concert series, Manilow on Broadway, last Friday, January 18. The limited Broadway engagement was recently extended and will now play through Saturday, February 23, 2013.

"In honor of his concert series, Manilow on Broadway, playing just up the street at the St. James Theatre, we have renamed West 44th Street at 7th Avenue MANILOW WAY!"
