NEW YORK(CBSNewYork) — Weeks before John Paul II will be canonized as a saint, a group in Queens has decided to honor him on their own.
The Pope will now have a street named after him, 56th Street in Maspeth will be co-named Pope John Paul II Way.
Holy Cross Roman Catholic Church is located there, and it is the same place that the Pope visited during his 1969 visit to Queens when he was serving as Cardinal Archbishop of Krakow.
