ScoutingNY noticed a small neighborhood in the Bronx with some extremely nerdy names: Library Ave, Research Ave, Watt Ave, and Radio Drive.
The best of all intersections is where Ampere Ave (ampere is the full version of “amp”, the electric current unit) and Ohm Ave (ohm is another unit of measure of electricity).
Turns out the parcel of land was donated by Isaac Leopald Rice, inventor, chess patron, and of president of the Electric Storage Battery Co. after his death in 1915. The street names are a tribute to him.
