Rename Washington Street in DUMBO as "Selfie Way"

Its a well known fact that people travel to New York City from around the world to take pictures of themselves. The blocks of Washington St in Brooklyn, between Front st and Plymouth st may exemplify this phenomenon more than any place in the city. Winter or summer, rain or shine, the streets and sidewalks are completely full of people from all countries and lands (all contienents and parts of the US) taking selfies. This particular stretch of urban canyon -- stately brick
buildings capped by the Manhattan bridge base, with a hint of skyscrapers in the distance -- is on every selfie taker's global hitlist. Now is the time to memorialize this cultural phenomenon and let everybody know that this portion of Washington street is Selfie Way!
The city should add street signs designating the location "Selfie Way" and provide additional signage for motorists depicting a simplified image of a person taking a selfie, along with text reading "SLOW / PHOTOGRAPHERS PRESENT"
