ST. LOUIS (AP) — Washington Avenue in St. Louis is being hailed as one of the top 10 streets in the nation by the American Planning Association.

The association is lauding Washington Avenue for its industrial architecture, mix of land use and lively atmosphere.

Washington Avenue was once home to a thriving garment industry. When those jobs moved elsewhere, the street reemerged as a favorite place for restaurants, night clubs and shops.

Mayor Francis Slay lauds the street for its walkability and diversity, architecture, monuments, parks and art.
