Report: New York City Is Naming A Street After Batman Co-Creator Bill Finger

Posted by November 6, 2017 Comment

Bill Finger may have gotten the shaft while he was alive, denied credit for co-creating Batman for decades thanks to a deal Bob Kane made with DC Comics specifically prohibiting it, but at least the world has been trying to make things right lately.

It was in 2015 that Finger first began receiving credit for co-creating Batman in DC Comics and the movies and television shows they’re based on. And now, Finger will have a street named after him in New York City.

Newsarama reports that the city of New York is going to place an official street sign at East 192nd Street and the Grand Concourse in the Bronx, which is right by Poe Park, where Kane and Finger originally came up with the idea for Batman. Athena Finger will be on hand for the ceremony on December 8 to commemorate the event, along with Marc Tyler Nobleman, much to the chagrin of Gabriel Hardman.

If you’re in the area, the ceremony is set to take place at 10AM, and is presumably open to the public, so head on down!
