Mariano Rivera returns to the Bronx for Rivera Avenue unveiling Monday, May 5, 2014

5/1/14, "Mariano returns to Stadium for Rivera Avenue unveiling Monday (May 6)," NY Post, Dan Martin

"Mariano Rivera will be back in The Bronx on Monday and chances are he won’t have a hard time finding the place.

The street across from Yankee Stadium has been renamed from River Avenue to Rivera Avenue and the new sign will be unveiled in a ceremony at 11:30 a.m.

“It’s an honor to have a street named after me,” Rivera said in December after the City Council voted in favor of its renaming. “I have a lot of great memories driving down that street. My family and I are extremely grateful for this.”

Council member Maria del Carmen Arroyo, who led the vote to honor the retired closer, will also be on hand."
