GA Review[edit]

The article is very well written and well sourced. It's quite interesting. I believe it meets the Good Article criteria. Some suggestions for the article would be to add some more photos. A map of the avenue itself, highlighting the various points of interest, would also be a very useful thing to add. Overall, good work! Dr. Cash 02:56, 25 October 2007 (UTC)

  • Move the picture(s) below the other to avoid text sandwiching.
    • I can't move it much lower without squeezing the refs at the bottom in high resolution viewing. I shrunk the images a bit as well, but can't do much else for low res viewing.--TonyTheTiger (t/c/bio/WP:CHICAGO/WP:LOTD) 16:18, 13 January 2008 (UTC)
