Wow, that is kind of tough. Along with what was previously mentioned, I'll add Stillwell Ave (Coney Island, Nathan's, etc).

Vote #3 for Flatbush Avenue. No other street in the borough comes close!

Infamous street names... Mother Gaston Blvd.

Somewhat famous. Atlantic Ave.
Myrtle Ave. (Formerly known as murder ave. during harder times)
Flatbush Ave. (As others have already stated)
