We all know Boston’s most iconic buildings. What about its most iconic streets?

Which roads, boulevards, avenues, ways, wharves, etc., reflect the city’s history and present, the ones that represent it to the world in all its complexity, diversity, and uniqueness? And why?

There are some obvious candidates: Beacon Hill’s Acorn Street; Back Bay’s Commonwealth Avenue; Shawmut Avenue through the South End and Hanover Street through the North End; Blue Hill Avenue from Dorchester to Mattapan.

What’d you think? Our latest open thread turns the mic over to readers. Sound off in the comments section below.
