APA Picks 10 Great American Streets for 2009

The American Planning Association has released its picks for Great Places in America for 2009, including their choices for Streets, Public Spaces and Neighborhoods. Skagway, Alaska's Broadway tops the list.

The APA writes that Skagway's broadways was chosen because "The street's historic character, interesting details, unique stores and pedestrian orientation make it a popular place to explore, especially during the summer when scores of cruise ships make the town a port of call."

Other street picks include President Clinton Ave. in Little Rock, Arkansas and Duke of Gloucester St. in Williamsburg, VA.
