    What an icon. Technically she was the start of the "Philly Sound" so it was high time for Patti to get honored in such a way some 57 years later...

    Remember when she had the geometric hairdos (mile high) and kicked off her shoes and rolled across the floor - back inaday?
    I agree with you, Luke.

    I hear that the street sign has a typo...the "B" is lowercase.

    Doubt it matters, Patti has had her name used as either "LaBelle" or "Labelle" for years but yeah the "B" should be uppercase because that's how she got the name "La Belle" in the first place (La Belle means French for the beautiful).

    The lowercase "b" is only correct when referencing the group.
