Most common street names in America

The U.S. Census Bureau reports in the 1993 Census and You
* Second (10,866)
* Third (10,131)
* First (9,898)
* Fourth (9,190)
* Park (8,926)
* Fifth (8,186)
* Main (7,644)
* Sixth (7,283)
* Oak (6,946)
* Seventh (6,377)
* Pine (6,170)
* Maple (6,103)
* Cedar (5,644)
* Eighth (5,524)
* Elm (5,233)
* View (5,202)
* Washington (4,974)
* Ninth (4,908)
* Lake (4,901)
* Hill (4,877)
It's funny how "second" is first on this list. That's because there's a bunch of other names for "first" like main, center, state, etc.

It's neat to break this list out into the most popular trees:
* Oak (6,946)
* Pine (6,170)
* Maple (6,103)
* Cedar (5,644)
* Elm (5,233)

Or by geographical features:
* Park (8,926)
* View (5,202)
* Lake (4,901)
* Hill (4,877)

I tried finding a list of the most common trees in America so then I could cross-reference it against the most popular street names with trees and see if they go in the same order. But I could not find the list anywhere online. Lots of lists that order the most popular trees by state, but not by all of America.

But I did manage to find an interesting list:
List of Famous Trees. How cool is that? A famous tree. I want to visit these!

It's a pity that all those towns are mostly identical. Without a GPS, one could not say where in the US he actually is. All streets of the same name, the same shape, the same building styles ... Your cities are more of the ... type that any town in any other part of the world.

I wonder where Broadway ranks. I've been through about 10 towns in the last 2 years with a Broadway St or Avenue
