ALBANY, N.Y. -- Mayor Jerry Jennings unveiled the official new name for State Street in downtown Albany on Thursday.
A special ceremony was held to mark the occasion, as the street was officially renamed to Jack's Oyster House Way in honor of the landmark's 100th anniversary.
Jack Rosenstein first opened the restaurant in 1913 on Beaver Street. In 1937, he moved the restaurant to its current location.
Now, the restaurant is owned by the family's third generation. Current owner Brad Rosenstein said the renaming is a great honor for his family.
"We are the second oldest in America. Continuously owned by the same family. So we are really honored to have a street named after us," said Rosenstein.
There was also a celebration for second generation owner, Arnold Rosenstein. He turned 92 on Thursday.
