    NYC unveil a street sign for Bill Cunningham Way on the corner of Fifth Avenue and 57th Street in Manhattan on July 6, 2016. ( Michael Appleton/Mayoral Photography Office)New York – A Manhattan street corner will be temporarily named for longtime fashion photographer Bill Cunningham, who died last month.

    Cunningham, who took pictures of everyday people on the streets of New York for The New York Times, died June 25 at age 87.

    City officials on Wednesday are renaming the northeast corner of 57th Street and Fifth Avenue “Bill Cunningham Corner.”

    The renaming will last through next Wednesday. Mayor Bill de Blasio has the power to rename a street for a few days but permanent renaming must go through a legislative process. The city hopes to find a more lasting way to honor Cunningham.

    The mayor says Cunningham’s photos captured the “city’s diversity in every sense of the word, and helped define New York as the fashion capital of the world.”
