I wonder what image does the expression'on a shady street'invoke in a native speaker if he or she comes upon following paragraph.
"They were from a nice family in a nice house on a shady street. Church on Sundays. A thousand baseball games when Ronnie was a boy. How had it all come to this?"
For reference, Ronnie is a frustrated pro baseball player who is now on death row for a crime he has not committed.
