A Manhattan street is named in honor of the well-known runner who called the area home.
Ted Corbitt Way now spans three blocks on Broadway from 225th to 228th Street.
The Olympic Marathoner founded the New York Road Runners Club in 1958 and is recognized as the "Father of Long Distance Running."
Corbitt's son was joined by elected officials, running enthusiasts, and residents to pay tribute to the man they say brought fitness and positivity to their neighborhood.
"I want this to be something for everybody here in the Marble Hill Community," said Gary Corbitt, Ted Corbitt's son.
"Here in Marble Hill, where we have a star, a pioneer, a PhD—everything you want your kid to be, that's what Ted was," said Rep. Charles Rangel.
Corbitt died in 2007.
