How do I find my cross street?
In 1959, the New York City Council changed the name of Fourth Avenue that ran from 17th Street up to 32nd Street to Park Avenue South in order to please businesses which wanted a piece of the esteem now associated with Park Ave. This left only a very small area of the original Fourth Avenue.
Along with Broadway, Wall Street is perhaps the best-known New York City thoroughfare. A metonym for the financial industry, the eight-block-long stretch in Lower Manhattan was originally named “de Waal Straat” by Manhattan’s early Dutch settlers.
In Manhattan, streets run east and west, with the numbers ascending as they move north (or, as New Yorkers say, “uptown”). Most numbered streets begin with an “East” or “West” signifier, which tells you whether you’re east or west of Fifth Avenue in Manhattan.

It’s nearly impossible to memorize the cross streets for every street address in New York City….Here’s what you have to do, according to many tourist websites that describe the mathematical formula:
To find the intersection between two roads, insert an ampersand (“&”) between the two street names. Search for “Broadway & E 14th St, New York, NY” to find the intersection between Broadway and East 14th Street in New York, for example. Click “Street View,” if the option appears, to see the area from street level.
