Wall Street

This street is very famous in New York. The name reminds us of trading and money exchange. Wall Street is a narrow street that goes from Broadway down to the River street. It has been named Wall street because back in the 17th century the Dutch made a wall to limit their society. In the 18th century, traders would gather under the trees in the street and would do trading informally. It became the source of money market in New York in 1817.

 

Via Dolorosa

The word Via Dolorosa in Latin means the path of sorrow. It is a famous street in the old Jerusalem and is made of two parts where Jesus Christ has walked in it before his crucifixion. The street has been changed a lot since then but the pilgrims walk the path to remember the pain that Jesus tolerated.

 

Champs Elysees

The street with its movie theaters, luxurious shops, and oak trees is one of the most famous streets in Paris and France. The street is a very fine place for shopping. Since not many people can afford to live in the street the upper part of the shops are usually occupied with offices.
