Didja know that a trolley once traveled down the center of Wydown?
The American Planning Association has named Wydown Boulevard in Clayton as one of the nation's "Great Streets" for 2010. (The Delmar Loop won similar honors from the APA back in 2007.)

In announcing this year's winners, the APA has this to say of Wydown:
"The wide and verdant median, defined by its lush tree canopy and footpath, acts as an extension of Forest Park, the eastern terminus of the boulevard. Wydown Boulevard's reputation as a safe right-of-way attracts pedestrians of all sorts throughout the day and evening, from elementary, middle school, and college students to residents, joggers, and bicyclists."
