Posts Tagged ‘Easy Street’

Where do you want to live?  On Easy Street?  “Annie” knew about it and if you live in Carefree, Arizona, you might be able to live there or at least have a business there.  From our parked car, we walked down Easy Street to the Wine and Art Walk.

The phrase “on Easy Street” means: Having an easy living; in comfortable circumstances; prosperous; riding on the gravy train.

American slang from the close of the nineteenth century.

The earliest record of this imaginary street in the Dictionary of American English takes it to George V. Hobart’s It’s Up to You (1902), in which the author tells of a young man “who could walk up and down Easy Street.”   ~Super Beefy
