[The Nereids were 50 attendants of the Roman god of the seas, Neptune.]
The Nereids weren't merely Neptune's attendants; they were also the mermaid daughters of Nereus (a minor water-god under Neptune's jurisdiction).
The question is, who would give a sea-oriented name to a street that's totally land-locked? (No, the Bronx River doesn't count.)
