Street signs bearing the familiar stylized “S” insignia for Superman and honorary street names “Joe Shuster Lane” and “Lois Lane” were installed recently by the city to honor the neighborhood where teenagers Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster created one of the best known mythical figures in the world, Superman.

These signs are at the intersection of Amor Avenue and Parkwood Drive, at the site of the former home of Superman artist Joe Shuster.

Similar signs have been erected at East 105th Street and Kimberley Avenue, where Siegel lived and where the two did much of their work.

For those of you who don’t know Cleveland, the neighborhood where the creators of Superman once lived and created Superman, is now in a predominantly black neighborhood.

So, yeah, Superman was, technically, born in the hood.

Just like The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
