The Isley Brothers Will Have Two Streets Renamed After Them in New Jersey

The honors one receives over the course of a successful career may include proclamations, awards, recognitions, and financial stability. To some, a rare opportunity comes along where a street is renamed in someone’s honor, even rarer when two will be named after you. This unique occasion is taking place in New Jersey for one of the most successful acts in music history.

The Isley Brothers, who had recently participated in a Verzuz battle against the legendary band, Earth, Wind & Fire this past April, had posted that they will have, not only one street renamed after the group but, two in the state of New Jersey.

Join us on Thursday, June 24th for the official street renaming on the corner of Van Arsdale Pl. and Van Cortland Ter. Teaneck in. New Jersey!”

According to North Jersey, The Isley Brothers are being honored in the North Jersey towns of Englewood and neighboring Teaneck. “I’m truly grateful and humbled that Teaneck and Englewood, two cities that are so near and dear to me, have chosen to honor the Isley Brothers in this way,” Ron Isley said.

The two separate ceremonies will occur on the same day as a stretch of Van Arsdale Place in Teaneck and a stretch of Liberty Road in Englewood will both be renamed in honor of the brothers, The Isley Brothers Way.

“We had feelings for both places,” said Ernie Isley, who had once lived on Liberty Road in Englewood. He and his brother Ron, who had previously lived on Van Arsdale in Teaneck, will be there for the twin re-christening ceremonies. The first will take place at 2 p.m. Thursday at the corner of Van Arsdale and Van Cortlandt Terrace in Teaneck, and then at 3:30 p.m. at the corner of Liberty Road and Greenleaf Avenue in Englewood.

“This is something very special to Ernie, me, and the whole Isley family, and something we don’t take for granted.”
