一個句子不懂,求解!!!

Pennsylvania Avenue is one of Washington's main thoroughfares — a broad road, six miles long, that cuts diagonally through the city, beginning in the southeast, at the intersection with Southern Avenue, and heading northwest. It was one of the city's first streets, mentioned as early as 1791 in a letter written by Thomas Jefferson. In the years since it was laid out, Pennsylvania has unofficially earned the title of America's Main Street — "a nod to the line "it runs from the Capitol to the White House

這是出自

    我是這麽讀的:

    In the years since it was laid out,Pennsylvania has unofficially earned the title of America's Main Street — "a nod to the line" it runs from the Capitol to the White House , past the FBI headquarters, theTreasury Building and the World Bank A nod to the line: 對此路線的肯定。自從它被規劃界定以來這些年,賓夕法尼亞(大道)已經非正式地贏得了“美國大街”的頭銜 – (誠然是)對此路線的肯定:從國會山莊到白宮,經過聯邦調查局總部,財政部,和世銀。

    For example:
