Does your city or a city you know have a street that can compare or be grouped with Broadway in NYC. Or is there a street that is iconic for your city? Only positive post please.

Atlanta- Peachtree Street


Charlotte- Trade and Tryon


Chicago- Magnificent Mile

I can't find any pictures but the Houston Theater District has the highest concentration of theater seats in country out side of Broadway. Here's a quoter form the Theater Districts website:


"The Houston Theater District is ranked second in the nation for the number of theater seats in a concentrated downtown area and is one of only five cities with permanent professional resident companies in all of the major performing arts disciplines of opera, ballet, music, and theater.

We are home to Houston's nine world-class performing arts organizations, the 130,000 square foot Bayou Place entertainment complex, restaurants, movies, plazas, and parks.

It was a little negative I was just asking for a few pics of the Main and Popular Thoroughfare in your city. Wasn't really asking for a critique of the streets sidewalk traffic.

And Peachtree Street normally has a good amount of Pedestrian traffic especially near Metro Mall, Peachtree Center Mall, Woodruff Arts Center, Fox, Civic Center, pretty much the whole stretch as well as the Buckhead Stretch. And its a beautiful walk between Five Points and The Arts Center, you should do it some day if you come to Atlanta.


Heres one of the City I grew up in Fayetteville NC-Hay Street

Miami Beach: Lincoln Rd. It's probably the most successful pedestrian road in the entire country.

I think it's safe to say that downtown LA is booming.

The rest of Atlanta isn't that nice in my opinion. Buckhead is though.

I could beg to differ with your statement about Atlanta. BUt please dont turn this into a debate about cities. Just post pictures of great areas or districts of your city or comment on the pics PLEASE. NO NEGATIVITY
