    There's a window in the wall.
    An avenue is usually lined with trees.

    I think an avenue is a wider road with or without trees.They are usually the main roads of the city or a town. I remember the only wide road in my Granny's village was called an avenue.

    Re: Hi friends

    There are a lot of avenues here without any trees. What do you think, queenbu, they are avenues or not?

    You're welcome, moallem.

    Harry,my house is on an avenue and there are trees. I wouldn't like to live in a house on an avenue without trees.
