Broadway Soundex Code B630

600 W. at 2800 N. to 1200 W. at 6358 N.

Named after New York City's famous theater district, Broadway's name was originally Evanston Avenue.

It was changed because the name "Evanston" was too tied to prohibition/temperance, and those who owned taverns, inns, or other liquor-serving establishments didn't appreciate the "dry" implications that the name gave them.

Not Broadway Street or Broadway Avenue. Just Broadway. This is the only street in Chicago that has no street or avenue designation.
