"The constitution and physical aspect of New York is soon seen; it is hardly more varied than a chessboard. The streets, cut at right angles, are called avenues when they are straight, and streets when irregular. The numbers on the principal thoroughfares are a very practical but monotonous arrangement; American cars run through all the avenues. Any one who has seen one quarter of New York knows the whole of the great city."
Jules Verne, A Floating City
