    across vs opposite

    Hi, guys^^
    The answer is opposite. But is "across" awkward in this sentence?
    Can you explain why? Thank you in advance

    Macy's is moving to Walnut Street, _______ the Hampton Theater.
    (A) across
    (B) opposite

    Re: across vs opposite

    Opposite is okay, but across from sounds better. Across by itself is wrong.
