<< < (4/58) > >>

This part of Norman, however, has streets named after Southern cities. There is a Beaumont, Biloxi, Nashville, Vicksburg, and Memphis, amontg others. I had a pizza guy get confused when he mixed up two streets that were both named after Tennessee cities.

There's a Hitler St.??  I assume it's pre-war, but you'd think someone'd rename it....

The only notable ones I can remember right now are Wolfe St. and Montcalm St. in Montreal, near the Beaudry subway station.

I love the sound of that! It will be on my bucket list.

Christmas, FL does the reindeer names.

This could/could not be considered a theme but Palm Coast, FL organizes their neighborhood/minor roads by alphabetical order (all the A-named streets are in one section, and so on).

Tallahassee, FL has streets named after all the counties in Florida.

Hollywood, Florida uses a presidential theme on its east-west Streets beginning with Washington and ending with Coolidge.  The city's gridiron was laid out in the 1920's.
