126th Street at Lennox Avenue in Harlem is getting a little more soul.
The street has been renamed in honor of Sylvia Woods, known as "the Queen of Soul Food."
Woods died in 2012.
She was a fixture in Harlem for 52 years after opening the popular soul food restaurant Sylvia's.
Hundreds turned out for the event, including the Reverend Al Sharpton, who says he always makes a point to bring his dignitaries to the restaurant whenever they're in town.
Woods' family says they're honored to have their matriarch honored after a lifetime of hard work.
"It's just so meaningful. This is a statement that will go on for generations after generation, so it's a major compliment to Sylvia," said her son, Van Woods.
"She was blessed to have children and grandchildren and their children to uphold the same spirit of greatness," Sharpton said.
The Woods family says they're breaking ground later this year on the construction of a new Sylvia’s Restaurant and lounge.
