In this example, 21 is divisible by 7.

There's a few in my area.  The first one I thought of was Pork St just outside of Skaneateles.  I always got a kick out of the name, and my grandma lived on it as a kid. Another meat-themed street is Beef St outside of Camillus.

Here in Auburn we have Cottage St (cottage cheese), and Maple St (maple syrup).  East of Auburn, there's a Cherry St Rd.

The idea is to post pictures that satisfy the Challenge in the body of your post (rather than just links). Also, don't forget to quote the Challenge statement!

So, in that vein:

Here's a sign I'm always more than happy to follow!

This name commemorates the origin of America's favorite (and yellowest) mustard, French's.
