If I have to pick on it's the Niederdorfstrasse. It doesn't have a specially nice architecture, it's just an narrow lane in the old town of Zürich, it's the cafes and bars that I like.

Favourite street? No clue. Though there are streets that really give of a special vibe. I "like" the Boulevard de Belleville in Paris.

Also, it's not really a street, more like a few blocks, but the whole "Gamara" area in Lima, Peru, is a completely crazy place.

one of my favorites too- a lot to offer from boutiques, restaurants and bars on the 1st and 2nd levels and specialty clubs, smoking rooms and more bars on the upper upper levels.

great promenade for shopping but when the stores close by evening, there's not much activity here.

I like the Meir in Antwerp!

In my own country I like De Leidsestraat in Amsterdam. It doesn't have classy buildings of luxury stores, but it is vibrant and dirty. Its a convenient street for me, it has al the shops/restaurants I needed.
