The United Streets of America For thousands of Americans, California is tiny, Rhode Island is huge, Minnesota is east of Maine, and Georgia meets Arkansas in the Northwest. In our nation’s capital, each state gets two Senate seats and its own street.
The United Streets of America is custom-designed graphic showing a local map of streets as a national map of states. Now available as a beautiful print.
The 1791 L'Enfant plan for the City of Washington featured a diagonal avenue named for each of the republic's 14 states. Today, 48 avenues, one street, and one drive represent every state in the union. This map is a celebration of the city that belongs to the entire country, a commentary on federal encroachment in D.C. affairs, or a simple guide to navigating those confusing diagonal avenues.
