Elm Street is a street in the fictional town Springwood, Ohio.

As with Springwood as a whole, there is a different version of Elm Street for every version of A Nightmare on Elm Street.

Also, again as with Springwood as a whole, for each version of the story, there appears to be a physical world and a Dream World version of Elm Street.

The Original Film Series

It is the main setting for the original A Nightmare on Elm Street film series.

Apparently, parallel versions of Elm Street exist in the physical world and the Dream World.

In the first film of the series, the teenage children of the people who burned him alive were the main target for Freddy Krueger after he was burned alive and gained the power to enter dreams. He also appeared to be targetting the adults who burned him alive, though that appeared to be less of a priority for him.

He was apparently less selective in Freddy's Revenge. In this film, he mostly killed teenagers, who apparently weren't the children of the people who burned him alive, but also killed Schneider and attempted to kill Angela Walsh.

Between the fifth and sixth movies, he killed all over Springwood.

In Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare, Freddy is able to use his daughter Maggie Burroughs to leave Springwood and he declares that every town has an Elm Street and thus he can kill everywhere.
