Queen Street is the beating heart of Auckland's central business district and is famous throughout New Zealand as its commercial hub. Queen Street begins at Queen's Wharf, next to the Britomart Transport Centre and continues on up towards Karangahape Road. Named after Queen Victoria, the street is known across the country and has a reputation for being prime real-estate locality in New Zealand. Interestingly, it even occupies the most expensive blocs of real-estate of the Kiwi version of the popular board game Monopoly.
Queen Street has been the host of many parades and marches and is the site of many political and cultural events. It is one of the most highly visited areas in New Zealand. Most banks, department stores, and restaurants have a franchise on Queen Street, and it is known as the main retail precinct of the city.
