    connection between words in a sentence

    Hello everyone.
    I'd like to ask about the connection between some words in the following passage.

    They drove down one of several streets in this town called "Peachtree" and then turned on to another street, thus giving Annnabella a close-up view of the bocce ball game.

    Does the name "Peachtree" refer to 'town' or to 'street'?
    Annabella actually came to Atlanta.

    "Peachtree Street" is a famous historic street in Atlanta; but apparently, there are now quite a few with this name.

    They drove down one of these 'several' streets, all named Peachtree.
