(Baltimore, MD) -- There is a new name for a portion of Lyndhurst Street in west Baltimore.
Congrats to Mrs Cynthia Shaw, president of the Lyndhurst Community Association, for all she has done to work with Baltimore city officials to get Lyndhurst street-where Elijah lived from 6th-12th grades-named “Elijah Cummings Way.” What a fabulous honor and a wonderful ceremony. pic.twitter.com/bcMZjeiaq8— Maya Rockeymoore Cummings, Ph.D. (@MayaRockeymoore) October 22, 2022
