Earlier this year the Washington Post catalogued literally every street in America, and in doing so, they uncovered some interesting patterns. While most streets in America are actually named normal things like “Park”, “Second” or “Main”, there are some more creative ones out there.
Here in Austin we enjoy such strange names as Slaughter Lane and Convict Hill, which are much less frightening than they sound. While in other parts of the country the names get even weirder. Here are 15 funny street names from all across this great nation of ours.
