College Ave. Most Beautiful Street in America

The results from an exhaustive CNN study have shown that State College’s own College Avenue was deemed “Most Beautiful Street in America”.

“It was a tough decision,” said Steven Kroznyk, the CNN analyst who conducted the study, “But we’ve determined that no street in the United States can match State College’s pristine beauty.”

College Ave., which narrowly beat out several streets in both Detroit and Cleveland, is bringing great pride to the Penn State community. Martha Williamson, a sophomore in civil engineering, said, “It’s really a wonderful looking street. I’ve heard that it’s currently undergoing construction, but honestly, I can’t even tell!”

Some, however, are disappointed about the study. Local construction worker Gregory West feels that his accomplishments have gone unrecognized.

“I spent eight hours every day for three weeks working on that street, from sunrise to sunset,” he said, “and not even a ‘Nice job, Greg!’ Sometimes I wonder if I’m even cut out for the cutthroat industry of construction!”

State College Mayor Elizabeth Goreham plans to accept the award on Monday in front of McLanahan’s (provided that the sidewalk is open).
