    Street Snames

    I noticed on a recently printed GIS map that the abbreviated direction on some street names appeared to be combined with the street name itself. S. Huntington became SHUNTINGTON etc. This could be problematic if it happened to the wrong name. Like South Hits Street, North Ochers Street etc. Any more?

    Builders often joked that my former Village Hall was located on Hassell Road.
    Dude, I'm cheesing so hard right now.

    South Pewe Street?
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    Felch Street in Ann Arbor is between Hiscock and Cherry.

    But that's not what this thread is about.

    In Poughkeepsie, there is a White Street. No White Street runs through a rough ethnic neighborhood and So White Street which runs through an affluent primarily white neighbrhood.

    Somewhat off-topic, related to road signs blaring "69", as seen on I-75 In Troy, MI:
    Exit 69 - Big Beaver Road
