Franklin Roosevelt, Avenue/Franklin Roosevelt-Laan

   Formerly the avenue des Nations, the name was changed following World War II to honor the 32nd president of the United States. It was build in Ixelles to connect the city center with the World's Fair of 1910. Renowned as the upscale avenue of the southwestern metropolitan area, the avenue is lined with townhouses, villas, and apartment buildings that were designed before World War II, many by prominent Belgian architects.
