When I lived in PR, in Santurce between Old San Juan and Isla Verde, the commercial street that served the area half a block from my apartment on Calle Taft was Loiza Street (Appears, from a google map to now be numbered, road 37). I wonder if it was the original road from San Juan to the town of Loiza in the early days. Do you know Jonathon? It certainly goes in the right direction.
Calle Loiza runs from Santurce to Isla Verde which is technically part of the township of Carolina. It currently ends at the border with Carolina, in a neighborhood called Punta Las Maria. I will do some research to see if i can find it's history, whether it actually went to Loiza, or is just named after the town.
One fast search (Sometimes i love Wiki) shows that there is a neighborhood in Santurce called Loiza, and that Calle Loiza passes right through this area. So i would assume that this is origin of the name. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/L...%ADza_%28Santurce%29
