Not without adding in the street and on the street, both of which seem to me to have (overlapping or the same) idiomatic meaning. DCDuring Holiday Greetings! 12:21, 28 December 2008 (UTC)

Isn't this caused by the geography of Manhattan? I'm pretty sure that if the island would have been oriented east-west the avenues would have been oriented east-west too. —This comment was unsigned.
