Street names after the town?

Recommended Posts

Another Superman. He's riding in a convertible in a tickertape parade.

 

Down Metropolis Blvd.

 

A street named after the town? :huh:

 

I can think of Hollywood Boulevard. But any other place?

 

Denver Boulevard? Dallas Boulevard? Spokane Boulevard? Paris Boulevard? London Avenue? Moscow Boulevard?

Here in where I'm from we have Austin st, Galveston, Boston, and many others. Sounds like your Superman comic just couldn't think up something better. Or didn't care to.

Here in my neck of the woods there's Euclid Ave. in Euclid,Ohio (Starts off in Cleveland)

Mentor ave in Mentor, Ohio.

Shaker Blvd. In Shaker Heights. Ohio

Cleveland Heights. Blvd in Cleveland Heights. Ohio.

Richmond Road in Richmond Heights Ohio

Warrensville Center Road in Warrensville, Ohio

I'm sure there's others in Ohio that I'm not aware of.

Here we have several such street, seldom the main drag.

 

more common is Pepperell Rd in Brookline leading to Pepperell. At the state line it becomes Brookline Rd in Pepperell leading to Brookline.

I lived in the town of Kennilworth, NJ when I was a kid.  The main drag through town was named "Boulevard" !!  Not "The Boulevard"  or some "___________ Boulevard".  Just "Boulevard"!!

 

Always thought that that was kinda' weird...

Going East from Highway 41 in Fresno you cross Fresno Street.  The next block is First Street.  First is second after Fresno.  Still bugs me.

 

OT... another thing that bugs the heck outta me is streets that change names.  Same street; different name after a certain distance.  Seems to be a Fresno and Seattle area thing.  silly.gif

Then do NOT go to the Boston area. Looking at a map, Boston looks like a big city, it's not. It's a bunch of small towns all gathered together. And every time you go from one to another, the street name changes.

It happens in Hanover, PA.  PA Route 94 goes into the town square.  From the town square go south and it's Baltimore Street, and go north it's Carlisle Street.  That's the names for boroughs or cities  that the road goes to.

Mayfield Road (US 322) goes right through Mayfield Heights, Ohio and right past one of my favorite gun shops, Mayfield Guns.

Nah, it happens all over.

 

There's a road in Columbus, GA that had 4 different names along its' length before they decided to name the whole thing Veteran's Parkway.
