George Carlin's boyhood home.Comedian George Carlin’s ashes were scattered in front of 519 W121st.

There is a move afoot to rename the block of W121st St where George Carlin grew up in White Harlem…ahem…Morningside Heights. While the comedian who died in 2008 would probably shrug off the hubbub the petition is now picking up steam and the efforts to rename the 500-block were featured in both the New York Post and the New York Times on the same day.
