We present X-ray spectral and spatial analysis of several filamentary and diffuse features that were first identified in the Chandra Galactic Center Survey. This 300-ks survey covers the central 300 pc of the Galaxy in the energy range of 2-10 keV. These features include the X-ray threads G0.13-0.11, G359.89-0.08, G359.54+0.18, and the diffuse 6.4 keV emission in and around the Arches stellar cluster. These X-ray sources all have radio counterparts and we will present multi-wavelength analysis and discussion of the physical nature of these unique Galactic center objects.
