Cannery Row is the waterfront street bordering the city of Pacific Grove, but officially in the New Monterey section of Monterey, California. It was the site of a number of now-defunct sardine canning factories. The last cannery closed in 1973. The street name, formerly a nickname for Ocean View Avenue, became official in January 1958 to honor John Steinbeck and his well-known novel Cannery Row. In the novel’s opening sentence, Steinbeck described the street as “a poem, a stink, a grating noise, a quality of light, a tone, a habit, a nostalgia, a dream. “
