Lomas Boulevard, Albuquerque, New Mexico

Encyclopedia Article


One of the older, major streets in Albuquerque, NM. The name Lomas means "hills" in Spanish, and is fitting with the street's route, which runs from Old Town in the western river valley all the way to the new developments in the foothills on the eastern edge of town, crossing some of the city's central neighborhoods, such as Downtown and Nob Hill. Some of the city's main institutions, such as the University of New Mexico and its hospital, the court houses, and city hall are located along Lomas Avenue, as well as numerous office buildings and commercial establishments.
