Grew up four hours away from Boston in upstate NY. Have no idea I was supposed to know about certain streets there. Couldn't name any before this thread. Silly premise.

Philadelphia everyone knows in sports from the Broad Street Bullies. That's about it there.

Where most of the record companies are located.
Just saying anytime I see the Predators on TV they talk about how the Arena is on a great stretch of Broadway.
Similar in Boston the Garden is linked to Causeway Street or how the old Chicago Staduim was known as the Madhouse on Madison.

Canal St I think of New Orleans first actually, and Madison Ave doesn't scream NY, I just knew it was in NY because you grouped it with Broadway and Wall Street.
Central Park West, Santa Monica Blvd and Las Vegas Blvd are kind of cheating because they say the city in the name, I couldn't tell you a thing about Santa Monica Blvd but I know its in Santa Monica.

I only know of Broad St. (Philly) from sports.

I know zero streets in Boston. Nothing really famous there that comes to mind.

It could be that because I'm from NY that I thought those streets were more famous than they actually are. I'm actually surprised you haven't heard of Madison Ave though. I always thought Madison Avenue was very well-known, but then again it might be my NY bias.

Canal street is one that I know people have definitely heard of. I didn't realize there was one in New Orleans, but I know everyone knows Bourbon street

Also Santa Monica Blvd is a major Blvd in LA that runs through much more than just Santa Monica
