Monument Avenue

They don’t call it “Monument Avenue” for nothing. This tree-lined grassy mall divides the east and westbound sides of the avenue; a 1.5-mile stretch of it is punctuated with statues memorializing Confederate figures like J.E.B. Stuart (pictured). In 1996, a statue honoring tennis great Arthur Ashe was added to the street, broadening the scope of what the city holds dear.
