Urban archaeology

Got to nosing around on the web looking at photos on the NYTA website of closed subway stops in NYC. This reminded me of some of the obscure stuff in San Francisco (examples: Jack Kerouac street. The fact a lot of alleys south of Market are named for various prostitutes. The original Levi-Strauss factory, located in the Mission.); which made me wonder about other people's urban landscapes.
What's in your hometown that is weird or obscure? The kind of things that natives know that newcomers don't? Links appreciated in your reply.
