Making Dallas Even Better

We’ve Found the Saddest-Named Street in All of Dallas

Just imagine the level of don’t-give-a-damn-ness one must have to name a street “Parking Lot Road.” And then use that name for every block in an entire apartment complex.

    I once worked off of STREET ROAD in PA.
    Obviously, they ran out of names….

  • Jessica Lowe

    Nonesuch Rd Dallas, TX 75214

  • Jmiller

    Nimrod Trail

  • Carol Shih

    No. This can’t be real.

    This is actually just an error in Google Maps. Often base data imports from the publicly available US Census Bureau TIGER data contain descriptive names instead of the real name when one does not exist, like Parking Lot Road or Service Road. If you consult the county plats, it will not exist as “Parking Lot Road”.

    But nonesuch is a cool phrase, like subzero.

    Not saddest. In Grand Prairie TX old aparments has a street named Rong Way.
