Curbed's Megan Barber rounds up the 11 prettiest streets in urban areas across the country.
A mix of picturesque cobblestones and wide boulevards, these picks vary as much as the cities in which they reside. The details, such as neon lights in Memphis and iron lace balconies in New Orleans represent a glimpse of the cultures that bring each one to life. At the top of the list is Acorn Street in Boston, which is often called America's most beautiful street. In San Francisco, Napier Lane is hardly a street at all:
In a city known for some of the most beautiful streets in the world, it’s hard to pick just one San Francisco heavyweight. But Napier Lane in Telegraph Hill gets our vote, if anything thanks to its uniqueness. Napier Lane is actually a wooden plank sidewalk lined with about a dozen pre-1900 cottage-like homes. It’s only accessible from the famed Filbert Street Steps, but climb the street and you’ll get sweeping views of the bay and appreciate the lane’s lovely foliage.
