Verdi Street

No surprises here: Verdi Street honors the celebrated Italian opera composer Giuseppi Verdi (1813-1901). It was one of half a dozen streets named for composers in a tract established here in 1905. (See Beethoven Street for more.) Verdi’s 26 operas include oft-performed titles like La Traviata, Otello, Rigoletto, and Aida.
