Avidita, Fourberie, Cupidity

“I will not take a victory lap because doing so won’t bring back the trees so haphazardly destroyed.”


  • (Reported in Crain’s New York Business 7/24/2017) Staten Island Borough President James Oddo was stating his reaction to a court’s upholding his right to give names of his choosing to streets surrounding a property that had previously belonged to Jesuits and was, to Oddo’s chagrin,  converted into condos. His names were Avidita Place, Fourberie Lane and Cupidity Drive.  For the meanings of those names and more of the story, go to: https://ny.curbed.com/2016/2/15/11028810/how-a-staten-island-developer-got-stuck-with-condos-on-deceit-lane
