From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This article covers numbered east-west streets in Manhattan, New York City. Major streets have their own linked articles; minor streets are discussed here.

In general, even-numbered streets are one-way east and odd-numbered streets are one-way west. 14th carries two-way traffic, and the traffic goes east-to-west on the eastern section of East 2nd Street between Avenue D and First Avenue.

Streets change from west to east (for instance, East 10th Street to West 10th Street) at Broadway below 8th Street, and at Fifth Avenue from 8th Street and above.

Although the numbered streets begin just north of East Houston Street in the East Village, they generally do not extend west into Greenwich Village, which already had streets when the grid plan was laid out by the Commissioners' Plan of 1811. Streets that do continue farther west change directions before reaching the Hudson River. The grid covers the entire span of the island from 14th Street and up. (13th Street is almost the southernmost numbered street to cover the entire width of Manhattan without changing directions, but diverts briefly northward as it meets 8th Avenue.)

1st Street - 7th Street

East 1st Street begins just north of East Houston Street at Avenue A and continues to Bowery. Peretz Square, a small triangular sliver park where Houston Street, First Street and First Avenue meet marks the spot where the grid takes hold.[1]

The east end of these streets is Avenue D, except for the aforementioned East 1st Street and East 6th Street, which connects to FDR Drive.

The west end of these streets is Bowery/Third Avenue, except for 3rd Street, formerly Amity Place, (to Sixth Avenue) and 4th Street (to West Street), which extend west and north, respectively, into Greenwich Village. Great Jones Street connects East 3rd to West 3rd.

East 5th Street is cut into three parts. 1st part is from Avenue D and ends on a dead end after Avenue C. Then it goes from Avenue B to Avenue A, and the 3rd part is from 1st Avenue to Cooper Square.
