gotta have a 2014 Street Name thread

Caravansary - This year we will create a caravansary that occupies the crossroads of a dreamland: a bazaar of the bizarre wherein treasures of every sort, from every land and age, flow in and out to be flaunted, lost, exploited and discovered. This is not a tourist destination, but a home for travelers who come here bearing gifts. Amid the twisting and the turnings of its souk, participants will come upon an inexhaustible array of teeming goods and unexpected services. Anyone may pose as 'merchant' here, and anyone may play a 'customer', but nothing in this strange emporium shall have a purchase price — no quid, no pro, no quo — no trade at all will be allowed in this ambiguous arcade. According to a rule of desert hospitality, the only thing of value in this 'marketplace' will be one's interaction with a fellow human being.

OK I am shocked, shocked that there is not a 2014 Caravansary Guess-the-Street-Names thread yet, so here is one, add on or start an official one as you see fit.

I like Dromedary for D. That is all.

I'm worried we'll even HAVE signs this year.The one at my corner was stolen before gates opened, and many more were gone by Tuesday.
THAT'S why we can't have nice things.
A lot of people don't realize there are white pieces of PVC at each intersection with the radial and letter marked in black....

Do it.
That white PVC tube with the black marker address on it:
  • With a cap with a battery, day/night sensor and a downward facing white LED?
    A tiny drop of PVC cement would secure a cap with the components onto the top of the tube. A serious twist would remove it.
  • LED, driver electronics & battery hanging below a sealing cork, stuffed in the top of the tube?
Water-proof, not too bright. The lower the schedule pipe the thinner the wall and brighter the shine-through?
  • Stick a $5 solar lawn light stuck into the top of a larger diameter PVC tube, sealed with silicone?
    Cut the bottom off to have the light go down the tube more.
Total cost under $10 each. If enough people stuck one near the street front of their camp, or at the nearest intersection...

Looks real, but there still hasn't been an official post on it (and are they really ending the 9:00 side at L again, when they've had to expand it the last two years?)

From Reddit regarding the guy who instagrammed it;
Zac Cirivello is the media relations coordinator for the Org. It seems odd that he would leak the names, but he certainly has the potential to know them before an official announcement.

The picture's real - what you're seeing is a sneak peek of a page from this year's Survival Guide, which just recently started mailing out.

@Eric, expansion streets were added last year, but not in 2012. They've got the names picked and will have the resources to add them if/when necessary, but the size of the city (which will expand a bit this year) should be enough to accommodate the population based on previous years and population density and whatnot.

When you say the "size of the city" do ou mean that they've made the diameter bigger and thus each of the streets longer or something else?
