From Pittsburgh, PA to Columbus, OH, this type of street with rows of banks and office buildings was a common site in many turn of the
century cities. Today these streets may still exist but there are probably a wider variety of
businesses along the sidewalks. A renovated
bank building could now house offices for a Pittsburgh or
Columbus DUI lawyer with a retail store or coffee shop on the ground floor.
