Although many of his most memorable speeches and rallies occurred in the southern United States, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. had a huge presence in New York City during the 1950’s and 60’s – he gave many sermons at Riverside Church in Morningside Heights in Manhattan, led an anti-war march from Central Park to the United Nations, and received a Medallion of Honor from Mayor Robert Wagner. Across New York City, he has no less than eight major memorials dedicated to him, from streets to parks to playgrounds to housing and educational centers, and across the US in its entirety, there are approximately 900 streets in his name.
