friday favorite: the shambles, york, united kingdom

Photo: VT_Professor.

Here's The Shambles, one of the most famousest streets in the UK and winner of Google Maps's first ever "Most Picturesque Street" contest. Oh, glorious narrowness. I die from charm.

The contest has inspired The Huffington Post to ask its US readers which street they think is America's most picturesque. I'm a big fan of Elfreth's Alley, Philadelphia.

Every Friday I'll post a favorite narrow street snapshot from somewhere around the world. Got a Friday favorite of your own? Send me your photos!
