So little people got rue st catherine. Probably one of the best party streets in the world. Where I live outside Boston is only 4 hours drive from montreal where you can drink at 18. Ahh the good ol days.

I think some comments were deleted. Here's a link to the first of several sequels I made to this quiz. Now probably redundant because QM took some of the answers from mine. :P

Isn't there also a street in Bordeaux, France called Rue Sainte Catherine?

Pretty sure there's a Michigan Ave in Washington, as well. Disappointed to not see Main St, Elm St, 1st St, or Maple. More seriously, though, what about the Via Dolorosa? That's gotta be more famous than many of these others. Would help make the quiz a bit more international, as well. Some other famous streets I know of, maybe for the next version of the quiz.... Orchard St in Singapore, Bangla Rd in Patong (Phuket), Roxas Blvd in Manila, Soi Sukhumvit in Bangkok (also Soi Cowboy and Soi Nana), Sheikh Zayed Rd in Dubai, King Abdullah St in Riyadh (though I think they probably have one of those in every city in Saudi Arabia), Exhibition Rd in Manama... most of these probably not known to the average person though you could guess some.

and then plenty of other famous streets for cities that you've already included like... Broadway, Abbey Rd, Atlantic Ave, etc. Nice quiz.

Expanding on above. London's Lombard Street is the equivalent of Wall Street in New York. The Bank of England is at one end of it, Lloyd's insurance market was previously located there, as were the HQs of most British banks. London should be accepted as an alternate answer.

There may be a Pennsylvania Avenue in Atlantic City, but the White House is at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Every American knows that, so I can't imagine Atlantic City rates on the same level.

But every Monopoly player in the English speaking world knows about the Pennsylvania Avenue in Atlantic City, so it's even. I think it should be accepted. :)

There's a Michigan Avenue in Monopoly too, but I immediately thought of Chicago. I also immediately thought of DC for Pennsylvania Ave.. Also, Monopoly games in other English-speaking countries don't have streets from the USA.

@kalbahamut: this is something, that americans alway forget. They make war in countries far away from home to bring "freedom" but at its all about oil. And then they go home and the people of the invaded countries start to "invade" Europe now - I hope american press is writing about that (if not, I would not be suprised). WE have to clean up your mess and thats why its hard to stand your comments, because you think of yourself as such a wise guy - but are just a typical american. And this says everything!

Hey McCoy, please tell me, which European country, when it was the world's reigning power, acted any differently? Remember that "the sun never set on the British Empire"? Or how about those Nazis and their Italian allies? The Belgian Congo? Why do you think they speak Portuguese in Brazil, Spanish in the rest of South America, and French in parts of Africa? Do you think they're just fond of those language, or was it maybe that Europeans came over and conquered those people? How about the Dutch East Indies? Is international intervention unique to America, or is it simply that whichever country is most powerful imposes its will, as it always has? It's easy to sit back with a view from the middle and gripe about the US. You know why Ireland doesn't invade countries? Because it can't. Neither can Austria or Latvia or Czechia. So stop acting like its some intrinsically American problem. It isn't. It's a power problem. Always has been.

It's one of the major spokes coming from downtown Detroit to the suburbs (and beyond), but realistically, the Michigan Avenue in Chicago is definitely more synonymous with Chicago than the one in Michigan is with Detroit. Woodward Avenue is the big one here.
