An Avenue By Any Other Name

Magnum Photos: Muhammad Ali event. 401 Projects, 401 West St., nr. Charles St., 7 p.m. Presented by Claiborne. Michael J. Fox hosts (the “Magnum Festival” will raise money for Parkinson’s research); expected guests include Mark Seliger, Heidi Klum, and Damon Dash. Per Google Maps, various parts of the shore-hugging road on Manhattan’s West Side are known alternately as West Street, the West Side Highway, the Joe DiMaggio Highway, the Henry Hudson Parkway, Tenth Avenue, Eleventh Avenue, and Twelfth Avenue. Why stop there? The freedom to name a stretch of West Side highway, parkway, or avenue should be every New Yorker’s birthright.
