A commercial street that brings out the exhibitionist in everyone.

What makes it Great?

Why it doesn't work?

This street is a place where tourists and residents converge. It's not long, but is packed with wonderful uses. The produce stands and flower stalls, along with the caf_s, stores, and restaurants, make this agglomeration of activity as intense as any we have seen outside of the bazaars and souks of the Middle East and Asia. There's always a lot of passion on display as the street merchants, performers, and even pedestrians compete aggressively for attention.
