A year after the passing of Steely Dan's co-founder Walter Becker, a street in New York was re-named as a tribute to the artist on Sunday (Oct. 28).  Located in Forest Hills, New York -- the street sign was unveiled at the corner of 112th St and 72nd Drive, where Becker grew up, and was co-named "Walter Becker Way." 

Presented by New York's Q104.3 and organized by the rock band's fans -- the ceremony included speeches from New York City Council Member Karen Koslowitz, who initiated the project, and Howard A. Rodman, Becker's longtime friend and collaborator.
