ⓘ Roosevelt Avenue, Quezon City

Roosevelt Avenue is the principal north–south road serving the district of San Francisco del Monte in Metro Manila, Philippines. It is situated in Quezon City and runs between Epifanio de los Santos Avenue to the north and Quezon Avenue to the south. It was named in memory of U.S. president Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

The avenue and the adjacent area are also referred to by local residents as Muñoz, being the site of a popular wet market, the Muñoz Market, located at Roosevelt and EDSA. The market was named after its owner Demetrio Muñoz, a philanthropist, businessman and a presidential adviser during the term of Diosdado Macapagal from the province of Pampanga. At the opposite end of Roosevelt on Quezon Avenue is Fisher Mall, a commercial establishment built on the land that used to be the main terminal of the Pangasinan Transportation Company PANTRANCO that went bankrupt in 1993. Roosevelt Avenue is also home to the transmitter of television station Intercontinental Broadcasting Corporation IBC-13.

In 2010, a bill was authored in Congress by Quezon City District I Representative Vicente Crisologo renaming the avenue after his predecessor, former Representative Reynaldo Calalay. This bill is still pending with the Senate Committee on Public Works and Highways as of April 2012.
