“Bleecker Street is not located midway between Bleeck Street and Bleeckest Street”

Bleecker Street, in Manhattan, is named after the Bleecker family that once had a farm there. There is no Bleeck Street or Bleeckest Street, but there are jokes.

“NYC tip: It turns out that Bleecker Street is not located midway between Bleeck Street and Bleeckest Street” was posted on Twitter by Michael Markman on September 7, 2017. “Wondering if Greenwich Village has a Bleeck or a Bleeckest Street” was posted on Twitter by Clifford Simak on November 12, 2017. “Bleecker Street in NYC implies the existence of Bleeckest Street, which no doubt is in Staten Island” was posted on Twitter by Scottmakingcents Album Out TODAY on February 5, 2021.


Wikipedia: Bleecker Street
Bleecker Street is an east–west street in the New York City borough of Manhattan. It is most famous today as a Greenwich Village nightclub district. The street connects a neighborhood today popular for music venues and comedy, but which was once a major center for American bohemia. The street is named after the family name of Anthony Lispenard Bleecker, a banker, the father of Anthony Bleecker, a 19th-century writer, through whose family farm the street ran.
