Article in NY Times on Favorite Streets in Europe

Interesting article in the NY Times a few days ago (just read it tonight) on Favorite Streets in
12 European Cities
. The Swiss street is Grosser Muristalden in Bern, second street described in article.

I do not know Bern well, but in 2013 I walked from the station to the bear garden, then along the river parallel to that street, to the Historical Museum for the Terra Cotta Warriors exhibit. Excellent views of the city across the river ... but the favorite street in Bern

but the favorite street in Bern
The rest of the article is the same:
- they managed to find a bit of Berlin that's not hip but boring. And to use Berlin as a place for the nicest street in Germany probably means the author has never been anywhere in the country but Berlin...
- the favorite street in Norway is a river...
- Prague has some amazing streets. So let's pick a completely random one instead.

The article is so random and boring it isn't even funny. I am sure the authors think that's how a feuilleton should be...

For some reason, I feared the Bahnhofstrasse to be in the list.
