Manhattan streets, 1-14

Manhattan streets, 1-14

This article covers numbered east-west streets in Manhattan, New York City between and including 1st Street and 14th Street. 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.)

Details

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. [ [http://www.nycgovparks.org/sub_your_park/historical_signs/hs_historical_sign.php?id=6509 Peretz Square] , New York City Department of Parks and Recreation. Accessed July 12, 2007. "A sliver of Manhattan bounded by Houston Street, First Street and First Avenue, Peretz Square marks the spot where the tangled jumble of lower Manhattan meets the regularity of the Commissioners' Plan street grid."]

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.:"Also see West 4th Street (Manhattan)"

8th Street and 9th Street

8th and 9th Streets run parallel to each other, beginning at Avenue D, interrupted by Tompkins Square Park at Avenue B, resuming at Avenue A and continuing to Sixth Avenue. West 8th Street is an important local shopping street.

M8 bus route operates eastbound on 8th Street and westbound on 9th Street between Avenue A and Sixth Avenue.

10th Street to 12th Street

10th Street begins at Avenue D and 11th and 12th Streets at Avenue C. They take sharp southward turns in Greenwich Village and continue to West Street on the west end. Because West 4th Street turns northward at Sixth Avenue, it intersects 10th, 11th and 12th and 13th Streets in the West Village.

M8 bus operates on 10th Street in both directions between Avenue D and Avenue A, and eastbound between West Street and Sixth Avenue.

10th Street has an eastbound bike lane from 6th Avenue to the East River, and westbound from the East River to Avenue A, which is continued on 9th Street to 6th Avenue.

13th Street

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.

14th Street
