Pennsylvania Avenue: America’s Main Street is almost ordinary on a Friday Afternoon


Washington, DC’s Pennsylvania Avenue is called “America’s Main Street” and is home to historic parades and events.  Less than a month ago it was packed with people for the second inauguration of President Barack Obama and on other occasions for solemn funeral processions.

Yesterday afternoon it looked very much like an ordinary street with people commuting,  leaving work, finishing shopping, and enjoying a beautiful afternoon.   Traffic was mild and it looked like an ordinary city street draped with unique federal buildings.   It bounces back and forth between being America’s Main Street and main street to a lot of ordinary people.
