"The Most Colorful Street in Honolulu"
Running directly down the urban core of downtown Honolulu, Fort Street is a narrow, pedestrian-only lane that taps into some of the most diverse elements of Hawaii city life. At one end, Hawaii Pacific University, a hub of international students from around the world. At the other, Aloha Tower and the glistening, tourist-friendly Aloha Tower Marketplace, home of fine dining and middle- to upper-end shopping. And all along its route, everything from major banks to homeless enclaves, from a satellite city hall and a major transit line to dimly lit holes in the wall that can be anything from lunchtime gems to dens of iniquity. Fort Street isn't for anyone, but if you want a taste of the real Honolulu... the work-for-a-living, real people, real stories Honolulu, it doesn't get much better than this. Note: For the most part, Fort Street is not a residential street. Not unless you count cardboard boxes and shopping carts.
