Lorain Council approves ‘Shipyard Way’ name change

Lorain’s Sunset Avenue, one of the streets leading into the HarborWalk neighborhood on the Black River, will get a new name: Shipyard Way.

On Nov. 18, Lorain City Council voted 11-0 to rename the street at the request of Lorain attorney Anthony Giardini.

Giardini is leading Red Brick Development, the company creating The Shipyards Event Center in the last building remaining from the days when AMSHIP, the American Ship Building Co., was located on the east side of the Black River.
