Gregory Street is an east-west street that stretches from Pensacola Bay to its western terminus at South Pace Boulevard (there is a one-block span signed Gregory west of Pace, between P and Q Streets; also a few blocks between New Warrington Road and Old Corry Field Rd). It briefly carries Highway 98 traffic westward from 17th Avenue and Bayfront Parkway, past the Interstate 110 on-ramp, to Alcaniz Street. It remains west-only until Tarragona Street, then becomes two-way for the rest of its length. Gregory Street is named for Walter Gregory.

In the late 1970s a new span of Gregory was constructed between 9th Avenue and Tarragona Street in conjunction with the southerly extension of Interstate 110. This left a section of the "old" Gregory Street east of Tarragona as a cul-de-sac, which was renamed Gregory Square.[1]

Prior to the renaming of streets in 1906, the portion of what is now Gregory Street in the west part of the City was called Havana Street, Alston Street, and 13th Street.

Restaurant Row[edit]

The one-way stretch of Gregory Street between 17th Avenue and the I-110 ramp is a popular destination for diners due to its wide assortment of restaurants.
