The Perfect Address for Pipe Dreamers


(CNN) — The future residents of a new Spanish neighborhood say they are the first in the world to name their street after the Super Mario video game character.

Onlookers sporting fake black mustaches cheered. A Mario mascot danced. And a violin and cello duet performed the catchy theme song from the popular Nintendo game as the suburb in Zaragoza, northeast Spain, unveiled “Avenida de Super Mario Bros” Saturday.

But the cartoon plumber character, who turns 25 this year, isn’t the only one who will be honored by residents of Arcosur, which is still under construction.

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

Pong Crescent does have a certain ring to it.
