Elm Street is well-known for the iconic Dealey Plaza and John F.

The sidewalks were made wider, one traffic lane was cut down to two, and parallel parking was added between landscaped bump-outs. This made Elm Street a more attractive place to go and made it easier to get from downtown to the Baylor campus.

Greenville Avenue is divided by Mockingbird Lane; attractions to the north are referred to as Upper Greenville, while those to the south are referred to as Lower Greenville.
