Paris street to be named after the legendary David Bowie

Paris street to be named after David Bowie

To add to the many millions of tributes to the late genius, David Bowie is set to have a Paris street named after him.

A new street near Austerlitz Station will be named after the iconic artist.

A street in the 13th arrondissement in Paris will soon be given the name Rue David Bowie in tribute to the icon and musician.

The mayor of the 13th arrondissement in Paris, Jerome Coumet, stated he is a fan of Bowie. Coumet would go on to say, “He had a strong link with the city of lights.” Even though the naming won’t be approved until February, he stated that approval normally happens without a hitch.

Last week was the 4th anniversary of Bowie’s death. In a series of posts, his son Duncan Jones and wife Iman paid tribute to his legacy. Iman’s post read, “Sometimes memories sneak out of my eyes and roll down my cheeks.” 

Bowie will also be immortalised in the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography alongside George Michael. The book aims to pull together the life stories of the most influential people in British History. Bowie’s entry reads, “His greatest legacy was in challenging and transgressing the gendered boundaries of his youth.”

It seems that Bowie’s influence knows no bounds. His life and legacy continue to reverberate the world over and will continue to for many years to come.
