HICKSVILLE, N.Y. (AP) — New York lawmakers are arguing whether to rename a quarter-mile road in Billy Joel’s hometown after Joel. They agree he deserves it. They don’t agree about whether an honor like that should go to someone who is still alive. Long Island Republican state senator Jack Martins proposed the bill to rename the street in Hicksville. He says the debate is more of a “philosophical discussion” and doesn’t have anything to do with Joel. Joel’s representative could not be reached for comment.
