Where is 2nd of December Street?

Last year Expat Echo posted an article titled “I’m Sorry Where? Old Place Names” which explained how old landmarks around Dubai are still used in conversation when describing to fellow residents directions around town.  This week we say goodbye to another street name as Al Dhiyafa Street  has now been officially renamed as “2nd of December Street”.

2nd of December Street stretches from  Union House (Dar Al Ittihad) off Jumeirah road, crossing Satwa to the Dubai World Trade Centre Roundabout.  The street has been renamed to mark the 40th anniversary of the UAE national day.

So now when a new arrival to Dubai asks you where 2nd of December Street is don’t look blankly at them think of Al Dhiyafa Street.
