Staten Island New York Celebrates Wu-Tang Clan

Alexandra Salmieri | For the Staten Island Advance

Wu-Tang Clan was recognized this weekend in the Park Hill area of Staten Island. The corner of Vanderbilt avenue and Targee street was officially named the Wu-Tang Clan district to honor the group for their contributions. Saturday’s rains didn’t deter the community from showing up, hundreds gathered as local leaders spoke of the group’s positive impact on the neighborhood. “This is a great day where we have an opportunity to honor our own hometown heroes, the young men who put Staten Island on the map internationally. They overcame all types of challenges, to not only become rap artist and hip-hop artist but to inspire and challenge the music world,” said council woman Debbie Rose. In addition to renaming of the district, artist Gano Grills unveiled a Wu-Tang esteeming mural. Afterward, friends and family celebrated with Wu-Tang Clan at The Richmond in Stapleton.
