Lubbock is honoring one of her own with a brand new crosswalk in the legendary Depot District.

The City of Lubbock announced the new crosswalk via their Facebook page today:

As a life-long glasses wearer, I've had several pairs a thick black glasses myself. They simply never go out of style. Buddy made them cool, and they've stayed cool.

You can drive by and check out the crosswalk, which is appropriately located on the intersection of 18th Street and Crickets Avenue. FYI in case you didn't grow up here: the Crickets were Holly's band.

For more awesome Buddy stuff, be sure to visit our friends at the Buddy Holly Center, located very near the crosswalk at 1801 Crickets Avenue.
