Broad Street is a major arterial street (12.5 mi long) that takes the name of Pennsylvania Route 611 for the majority of its length. It is allegedly the longest straight city street in the world. With the building in the 1870s of Philadelphia City Hall (that interrupts the street) it rapidly developed into one of the city's premier thoroughfares. Broad Street is home to a number of Philadelphia's cultural landmarks. It adopts different names depending on the section: Avenue of the Arts (which features the city's most vibrant artistic activities, with numerous theaters and several museums), Avenue of the States (with flags of all US states) and C. A. Tindley Boulevard (after this father of gospel music).
