Leonard Cohen was a legendary songwriter, poet, author and singer who passed away on November 7, 2016 at the age of 82. His special ties with Greece were well-known as he bought a home in 1960 on the Greek island of Hydra and spent a great deal of time living on the island.
Now, thanks to a decision made by the Municipality of Hydra, the famous artist will “live” on Hydra forever, as the City Council recently made a unanimous decision to name the road ahead of the entrance of his house “Leonard Cohen Street.”
The official inauguration of the street naming will take place during the summer.
