The ninth Tenth Street connector was officially renamed Roosevelt Brown Boulevard Wednesday.

Brown is from our area and earned a spot in the pro football Hall of Fame as a New York Giant.

“To have an honor bestowed, a big honor is something the city rarely does, bestowed upon a native son is very important and I view this as one of the kind of things that helps bring our community together and we can all agree we can be proud about this,” Charlottesville Mayor David Brown said Wednesday.

The mayor also presented Brown's wife the key to the city.
