    The late James Brown will have his very own street in NYC!

    Manhattan officials are naming a street after the Godfather of Soul. Huzzah.

    126th Street in the Harlem neighborhood near the famed Apollo Theater will be christened and renamed "James Brown Way."

    The new street name will be unveiled at a November 22 ceremony.

    Brown's daughter Deanna Brown Thomas will attend the event, while Reverend Al Sharpton will speak.

    Would you want to live on James Brown Way?
