Elk Street, NYC

As Nicholson reports, "In 1939 the Council of the City of New York passed the following resolution: 'Be it resolved ... that the two blocks remaining on Elm Street be known as Elk Street to pay tribute to the famous Order of Elks which was founded on that street in the year 1867.'"
(Nicholson, History, 1992 ed. 12-13).
