Neighborhood in Spain Names Streets after Video Games

A housing development in Zaragoza, Spain, will name its streets after classic video games. Last Saturday, residents dubbed one road "Avenida de Super Mario Bros.":

Other planned roads in the neighborhood include streets named for "Sonic the Hedgehog," "Space Invaders" and "The Legend of Zelda."

Video games won out over more traditional options in an online poll that residents used to pick their street names, said Antonio Almudi Miranda, president of the Arcosur neighborhood association.

"We are people who grew up living with video games. We know them very well," he said. "I'm 25. I'm the same age as Mario."

Close to that neighborhood development in Zaragoza, there is another one, which should be already finished, that uses name of movies for the streets (of course translated into Spanish):

For instance, "Breakfast at Tiffany's" (Desayuno con diamantes, in Spain) street is here: http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=Calle+de+Desayuno+con+Diamantes,+Zaragoza,+Espa%C3%B1a&sll=41.620961,-0.922208&sspn=0.010972,0.024848&ie=UTF8&hq=&hnear=Calle+de+Desayuno+con+Diamantes,+50019+Zaragoza,+Arag%C3%B3n,+Spain&ll=41.621955,-0.930233&spn=0.010972,0.024848&t=h&z=15

As you can see, it's close to Mary Poppins square
