The members of iconic R&B group Boyz II Men were honored in Philadelphia Saturday June 24, 2017. A section of Broad Street, between Christian and Carpenter Streets, was named "Boyz II Men Blvd." See highlights of the ceremony below. Congratulations on this hometown salute gentlemen! 


The R&B group, Boyz II Men, received a special honor in their hometown of Philadelphia yesterday. The group helped unveil a street sign to officially rename Broad Street, from Christian to Carpenter Streets, “Boyz II Men Boulevard.” The section is near the Philadelphia High School for the Creative and Performing Arts, where the members of Boyz II Men were once aspiring young musicians.

Renaming S. Broad Street outside CAPA as Boyz II Men Boulevard this fine morning. When they got that record deal, it was like we all made it!
