BARS::Seeking Pi Street Signs in Scottsdale, Arizona

These street signs were discovered in a Scottsdale neighborhood located near Papago Park.

The street signs say...

   +------------------+
   | N 66th St  2100  |
   | E Holly St  6600 |
   +------------------+

   If 66th St. was called something like Foo St., then
   the number 66 would be eliminated and we would have
   6600/2100 which approximates Pi (3.14).

   22
   --  is a fraction that can be used to approximate 'pi'
    7 

   using an equivalent fraction we get...

   22 x 300   6600
   -------- = ---- = 3.1428571
    7 x 300   2100
