Presidents in White Plains

Presidents  are honored in White Plains by the naming many of its streets after them. Besides the street named for him, our first President had a school named for him.   There is a George Street but there are others that this street was named after. Developers often gave names to streets with the approval of the City.

Some of the streets named after our Presidents are Washington, Jefferson, Jackson, Lincoln, Grant, McKinley, Harding and Coolidge Avenues, Fillmore Place and Cleveland Street.

City has a Clinton Drive and Street but this naming came long before President Bill Clinton was in office.

Campaigners for President often included a stop in White Plains.
