Shortest Street in America

The Shortest Street in America is still there, and even though it looks as if it could use a repaving, the job shouldn't take very long. As of 2019 it had a new "Shortest Street in America" sign, which replaced the old "World's Shortest Street" sign when an even shorter street was discovered in Scotland.
