lol...Atlanta did that to reduce crime stats of certain streets

For years, there was rampent prostitution and violent crime on Stewart Avenue. The name "Stewart Avenue" was weaved into all sorts of rhetoric against the governments competency. It became so effective the government changed the street's name to "Metropolitan Avenue."

And they actually reported that crime on Stewart Avenue declined...when the avenue maintained it's crime rate.
