Cool Cats Seek To Name Williamsburg Bridge After Sonny Rollins


BY DAVID COLON IN ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT ON OCT 18, 2017 3:55

 

 

A group of jazz fans waging a campaign to name the Williamsburg Bridge after jazz saxophonist Sonny Rollins now have allies in City Council Member Stephen Levin, who introduced a piece of legislation in the council to rename the bridge, and Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams, who's reportedly lobbying state legislators to support the renaming.
Rollins, one of America's greatest living jazz saxophonists, spent two years, from 1959 to 1961, blowing his horn on the Williamsburg Bridge during what he called a "sabbatical" from Harlem, where he first found fame as a jazz musician. As the people behind the Sonny Rollins Bridge Project explain, Rollins dropped out of the jazz scene at the height of his career, moved to an apartment on Grand Street and Clinton Street on the Lower East Side and spent up to 16 hours per day playing saxophone on the pedestrian walkway of the Williamsburg Bridge.
