Until approximately last year, the street called Sutton, in Maplewood, was Sutton Boulevard south of Manchester Road and Sutton Avenue north of Manchester. It’s now Sutton Boulevard the whole way. A resident mentioned it recently.
Google Street View from July 2016 shows a street sign as Sutton Ave, though Google now calls it Sutton Boulevard when any addresses are searched, such as Stone Spiral Coffee, now at 2500 Sutton Boulevard.
The city’s only comment was that Sutton Boulevard is the proper name for all blocks of Sutton — no comment on a change.
Spokesperson with St. Louis County Roads, David Wrone, said a name change would have been Maplewood’s work. A manager at the Maplewood Post Office said the post office still has it as an avenue, but it doesn’t make a difference as far as mail delivery goes.
Another small mystery: The avenue the restaurant, The Piccadilly at Manhattan is on, is spelled ‘Piccadilly’ from Commonwealth Avenue, south, and ‘Picadilly’ north of Commonwealth. One ‘C’ in St. Louis city and two in Maplewood.
