Streets named after blues musicians

With the recent designation of Buddy Guy Way in Chicago, I started to wonder what other streets -- or public places -- I knew about W. C. Handy Park in Memphis and Duke Ellington Boulevard in Manhattan -- were named after blues musicians. Some don't have to be -- you wouldn't rename Beale Street, for certain. Here's what Yahoo searches found.


Beaumont, TX

Holt, AL

There's also a street in Old Cape Cod named after Patti Page, who wasn't a blues singer, but good for her, anyway.
