|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.
