Some Strange Unique Street Names

Some people have interesting imaginations when coming up with street names:

There's a Gelliwastad Road near where I live, and as you can imagine, people usually exchange the 'w' for a 'b'...

Not quite the same, but meh..

I once lived on This Way and worked on That Way. Try ordering something when they asked for your billing address and then the delivery address.

Lake Jackson also has Center Way, Circle Way, Winding Way, West Way and even an unofficial street named His Way.

Sort of reminds me of two towns in PA: Blue Ball and Intercourse.

Heh, excellent thread, good find

This sort've reminds of two street names I saw in a very very small town...

They were "Jelly Man Way" and "Dorkus Street." Someone had a field day when they had to name the roads, I couldn't believe what I was looking at, though Dorkus is actually a name, I still couldn't take it seriously Hopefully they renamed it, or it was a practical joke, at least for the town's sake....


you very much

I wish there was a street called "Up Yours" Ave

Best one I have seen isn't actually the streets name but how it looks on a freeway exit sign...

Traveling on highway 680, I think it is, there is a sign somewhere around or in San Leandro that simply says...

"A Street Downtown"
"Next Exit"

Well it gets me chuckling...

Hey that's pretty good, street downtown.

Chuckling...kind of reminds me of upchuck... An "Upchuck drive". *That* would be awesome.
