Robsonstrasse

Robsonstrasse | Nickname | Before Robson Street became a congested parade of corporate consumer excess, it had a decidedly teutonic flair. Robsonstrasse was the nickname given to its busiest stretch (between Burrard and Jervis), where a large concentration of post-war Germans settled and set up shop.

Usage: “Robsonstrasse is another example of our constant need to reinvent ourselves…”explore-the-lexicon
