This area was the commercial area of the town before the 1970's after that it was revitalize to become the new entertainment center for the city.    In the past the naming from east to west  streets was after trees so this was formerly call Pecan Street.  From this view you can see the 6th street sign and the Frost building which is a iconic building in the city on it on.  This street is one that help create the image of Austin as being the live music capital and over the years has gone through many transformations, but it still draws large crowds on the weekend and it can be almost crazy with students, tourist and other wildlife and  on Halloween and Mardi Gras and it is pretty much anything goes then so be prepared.
