Sommaire

Histoire

La 16th Street Mall, imaginée par l'architecte I.M. Pei connu pour avoir réalisé la Pyramide du louvre, fut ouverte en 1982. En 2001 et 2002, elle fut allongée pour atteindre sa taille actuelle. Avant la construction de la partie piétonne, la rue proposait déjà des magasins et des bureaux. La zone est une attraction touristique et une zone commerciale importante du centre-ville.

Spectacles de rue

La rue accueille de nombreux spectacles dont des musiciens locaux qui cherchent à se faire connaître. On y trouve également des danseurs, des acteurs et des comédiens.
