Your Street Name and You

Your Street Name and You

Have you ever thought about the street you live on? Not the homes or the pretty curbside appeal but the name of your street. We grew up right outside Washington, D.C. and moved to Los Angeles in high school. We moved from a nondescript street name to Elm Drive. (While it wasn't Elm Street, it was close enough.)

We have friends who live on Wolverine Court even though they are alumni of University of Illinois and the Michigan Wolverines are school rivals. (Apparently their neighbors went to Michigan and found a house on that court because of the name.) We also know people that live on Shooting Star Circle who love their street name, Stoner Street who laugh at their street name, Sweet Lane who smile at their street name and Melrose Place, to name a few. We wanted to ask you, Apartment Therapy, about your own street name and how you feel about it when you turn the corner in your neighborhood to go home? Share your story with us below.
