The "Keith Richards" intersection

Living in Riverwest, I often cross an intersection just west of my neighborhood that makes me snicker every time I pass by: Keefe (Avenue) and Richards (Street). The joke -- "Look, it's Keefe Richards" never gets old, as long as it's said in a British accent.

It was actually my friend Matt who pointed out this rock 'n' roll intersection many years ago, and since then, I have tried to find others that are humorous in some way. Unfortunately, I haven't found another intersection with street names that complete one another, but if you know of one, start talkin' back.

There is an intersection of N. 70th St & N. 69th St north of Brown Deer Rd. Kinda funny.

Web search result (as an example):

"Keith Richards Bootlegs
A nice website listing track details for all of Keef's bootlegs, plus album cover graphics and more."

Did you know Keith's nickname is Keef? Makes it even better. 25 years ago the band the Squares took a publicity photo there with the signs clearly visible and it was really awesome. Nobody seems to talk about the Keefe Richards thing anymore. Thanks for bringing it back up!
