Main Street
FameRank: 9

"Main Street" is the metonym for a generic street name of the primary retail street of a village, town or small city in many parts of the world. It is usually a focal point for Retailing#Shops and Stores/shops and retailers in the central business district, and is most often used in reference to retailing and socializing. The street running parallel to a town's numbered streets, before First Street, may be Main Street.

The term is commonly used in Ireland, Scotland and the United States, and less often in Canada, Australia and New Zealand. In most of the United Kingdom the common description is High Street. In Jamaica the term is Front Street. In some parts of the south west of England the equivalent used is Fore Street.

In some larger cities, there may be several Main Streets, each relating to a specific neighborhood or formerly separate city, rather than the city as a whole. In many larger U.S. cities "Main Street" is a U.S. Highway; U.S. Highway 66 Association/"Main Street of America" branding was used to promote U.S. Route 66 in its heyday.
