DID YOU KNOW THAT... many American cities, the streets have numbers instead of names? This way, if you are on the 3rd Street, and want to go to 9th Street, you know you will have to walk six blocks. some American cities, such as New York, the words street and avenue are used interchangeably, the only difference being that streets run in one direction and avenues cross them? many American cities, the houses on the block between 1st and 2nd Streets are numbered from 101 up to 199; those on the block between 2nd and 3rd Streets are numbered 201 up to 299, and so on? This way, if you want to go to 1134E Monroe Street, you know that the house is located on the east part of Monroe Street, between 11th and 12th Streets.
...the principal streets of a city - those which carry the most traffic - are given such denominations as avenues, boulevards, turnpikes, highways, expressways, freeways and parkways?
...many highways, expressways, freeways and turnpikes have complete access control, that is, cars can only enter them at some specific places?
