David Bowie is set to be honored by having a Paris street named after him. Mayor Jerome Coumet, told French news agency AFP that “there will soon be a Rue David Bowie in the 13th arrondissement of Paris.”
The mayor said that a new road near Austerlitz station in the southeast of the French capital would be named after the icon. Revealing that Bowie “had a strong link with the city of lights,” Coumet added that “the naming must be approved by the Paris council in February,” something he says normally happens without a problem.
Last week (January 10) marked the fourth anniversary of Bowie‘s death. The singer’s 48-year-old son, Duncan Jones, and wife of almost 24 years, Iman, paid tribute to him in a series of touching social media posts.
