Open Sesame Street

The rules for this puzzle are loose. I’m going to give you two words that are related to each other by a third word. Note that some of the words might not be in the dictionary, but may instead be a commonly known place or name. Fill the third word that is related to the first two into the grid, and notice that gray squares will be used later.

I’ll start ’em easy and get tougher. Don’t give up until you’ve made your best effort and consulted as many of your friends as you can. It’s either that, or wait a week in agonizing suspense….
