Description And Comments
Similar to the Streets of America at Disney's Hollywood Studios, Universal's Street Scenes are facades of bustling blocks from New York City, San Francisco and Hollywood. A fourth area, from the New England coast, has been mostly demolished as part of an expansion project.
Of the remaining three, the Hollywood section (between Terminator 2: 3D and The Simpsons Ride) is the most realistic, incorporating mature landscaping with stuccoed bungalow homes and 1930s-era apartment buildings. Why is it that both Disney and Universal seem to do 1930s architecture better than anything else? We'd reserve one of these in a second if these were actual hotel rooms.
You'll see most of these as you walk through the park. A few offer decent shade and some concrete to rest on during the hottest parts of the day.
