20th Street South in October 1962

20th Street South is a north-south street in midtown and southside Birmingham. 20th Street begins at the southern end of 20th Street North at the Railroad Reservation. From there it first crosses Powell Avenue, and then continues through Southside for sixteen blocks to where it intersects with Richard Arrington Jr Boulevard South.

The street runs through the UAB Medical Center, and from 10th Avenue South to Highland Avenue, it is the main road through Five Points South, a major restaurant and entertainment hub of the city.

During the 1980s rows of Willow oak trees were installed along 20th Street South as part of the city's urban tree planting project, guided by Nimrod Long & Associates.
