A quick update on the street names here:
I spoke to one of the guys who was on the committee for coming up with the street names and he explained that they are all named after famous streets in different American cities. Suddenly the intersection of Sunset Blvd and Bourbon Street makes a lot more sense. He said that Peachtree is a famous street in Georgia.
(Don’t know what I’m talking about? Scroll down a few paragraphs to the entry titled “Wishful Thinking.” Don’t care what I’m talking about? Click on that little ‘X’ in the upper right hand corner of the screen.)
He also said that the original plan was to name all of the streets after local provinces, but that was struck down as sounding too colonial. This confused me. Why would naming streets after local provinces be considered colonial but naming them after American streets be acceptable? I think I’m probably not understanding some sort of history lesson or something here, but I’ve found that it’s better just let these things go.
