In the late 1990s, the District christened F Street NW between 6th and 7th “Fun Street”. But while local blog DCist may have loved Fun Street the re-branding never took off and the remaining street signs served as a reminder of marketing gone wrong. Undeterred by a little failure, the District has decided to try again.
Fun Street is now Abe Pollin Way.
While the Washington Wizards owner may be deserving of the honor, the name doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue. Any bets on how long this name change lasts?
