Street Made of Wood

In the University Circle neighborhood of Cleveland there is a street made completely of wooden blocks. It has been around since the early 1900s and has been made of wood ever since. The street is only 60 yards long.

[David, 05/28/2015]

The street was paved with blocks of Norfolk Pine in the days before the automobile. People like to walk on it, some barefoot.
