For Ludwig’s Van

Interesting signage in South Florida. (No, I did not check the remaining streets for symphonies 1-8.)

    That’s nice. Is it common in the USA to name streets after music?

      Ever since I was little, after I encountered a strange street name I would imagine there is a back room in some municipal building where a handful of exhausted employees are trying to outdo one another with the most bizarre street names.

      Jim: “It’s 2 in the morning and we still have 37 more names to go. What about the one here, next to City Hall?”
      Phil: “Come on guys, seriously, let’s name it ‘Street Street.'”
      Madge: [laughs] “Then we’d need Avenue Avenue…”
      Earl: “We already used that one.”
      Flo: “How about ‘Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony Street?'”
      Everyone: “Yes!”

      I don’t know of any tradition, though, of using music-related names for streets.
