Why not?

Why bother asking why?

A word is a sound that means whatever we want it to mean ... Yogananda might as well be Wakawanda.

Who among us has the right to say what streets "should" or should not be called?

...

I don't know why ... it is kind of weird. Very Happy

well, I assume it has something to do with this guy:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
19th century Bengali Yoga mystic and philosopher, famous for combining elements of yoga, buddhism and hinuism into a philosophical concept now known usually as karma yoga.

My point is: what is this guy doing with a street named after him, in a suburban white connecticut area of all places?

When I first read about SH, I thought "Yogananada" was teh anem of the building and taht Nancy probably bought it from some old yoga nut and was too lazy to get the named changed. But no, turs out its a name of the whole street. Why? Why a street like that in CT?

Do you know how many wealthy whites are into crackpot philosophies?

Look at Steve Jobs - he was diagnosed with cancer far earlier than most folks are, but he thought that he could cure himself by eating fruit and thinking good thoughts. Now he's dead...

Yeah that was my point. But there must have been a whole group of such crackpots there soem time ago to have the whole street named like this. that's why I was surprised its a whole street, not just one building.

Was there a hippie yoga community there back in the Haight-Ashbury days? I would like to know about this, what is the past history of Newton in this regard?

You are not the first to wonder why:

"Students of Vedanta society decided to establish a retreat site for students of Vedanta. Accordingly a plot of 370 acres was bought in the Berkshire Connecticut. The Berkshire Retreat was duly inaugurated by Swami Abhedananda in March 1907, and he remarked, “The Ashrama looks like Fairyland.”

"Berkshire's just a mile and a half from Sandy Hook, I'm guessing there's your connection."
