It may have been called Fifth Street then, but it's 5th Avenue now and it's still a very busy street. Many of the buildings are still standing. There is no longer a sacrificial policeman standing in the middle of the street though, in what is now considered the transit mall. It's not just buses either; there's also light rail, bikes, cars, and plenty of pedestrians. There are times when this traffic cop might come in handy.
