The Fourth Street Strip

Billboards as far north as Tennessee beckoned tourists by the thousands to St. Petersburg’s Fourth Street calling it “the longest motel street in the world ” in the '40s and '50s. There were 95 motels between the Gandy Bridge and Central Avenue in 1955 according to an article that year in the St. Petersburg Times. Today, there are only 11 motels remaining.(Nov. 22, 2017) CHERIE DIEZ | Times
