Tabularize?[edit]

So many sections! Should it all be a table instead? Jim.henderson (talk) 03:30, 27 August 2009 (UTC)

-I agree. Also this whole article isn't that great; like someone just threw it together. There's no standard way of organizing the info and not every street is listed. It needs a lot of work. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 128.238.79.92 (talk) 02:21, 5 April 2010 (UTC)

11th street[edit]

11th Street is cut off between Broadway and 4th Avenue, yet it's listed as being in one section. Anyone know the lengths of the two sections? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Schananigans (talkcontribs) 05:42, 9 November 2009 (UTC)

Isn't it considered one section through the church/park that's there? Epicgenius(talk to mesee my contributions) 13:58, 22 April 2013 (UTC)

Article title[edit]

If this article isn't going to contain all the streets in Manhattan, shouldn't it be renamed "List of numbered cross-town streets in Manhattan"? —Largo Plazo (talk) 00:10, 21 October 2011 (UTC)

Would you like to add every single street in Manhattan to this page? It covers the major ones that run through the city, the title does not say list of "all" the streets in Manhattan.MilkStraw532 (talk) 00:13, 21 October 2011 (UTC)

missing cross-references[edit]

I added 55th, but then I realized that many streets listed in Template:Streets_of_Manhattan are not listed in this article. 64.196.219.122 (talk) 21:28, 8 November 2011 (UTC)

Numbered streets only... Epicgenius(talk to mesee my contributions) 13:58, 22 April 2013 (UTC)

August 2017[edit]

I think the recent edits by 66.55.12.1 improved the article by adding significant details about the higher numbered streets, trimming and consolidating sections, and improving some spelling. The edit summaries of the reversions of these edits by User:Beyond My Ken are a) missing the point; b) empty; c) WP:IDONTLIKEIT; c) cryptic ("LGV")?. A complete reversal of 66.55.12.1's edits was unwarranted and I suggest to restore them and discuss the merits of their parts. -- Michael Bednarek (talk) 04:35, 18 August 2017 (UTC)

"LGV" is standard edit summary abbreviation for "reverting to the last good version". I continue to disagree that the edits of the IP improved the article, but if a consensus of editors here agrees with you, so be it. Beyond My Ken (talk) 16:18, 18 August 2017 (UTC)
I restored the IP's edits in the 1st-7th Streets section since these seemed to actually improve the grammar. I also think that the info about the missing streets would be better if consolidated, but that seems to be the issue here, so I will wait for consensus. epicgenius (talk) 21:48, 18 August 2017 (UTC)
They're not a particularly interesting topic per se, so they don't really need to be consolidated, but someone working through the list and seeing missing streets is going to be interested in knowing why those numbers aren't covered. Thus, it makes much more sense, and is more of a service to our readers, to leave the missing streets where they fall chronologically, rather than lumping them into a separate section (although I have no objection to a consolidated section and the chronological listing), Beyond My Ken (talk) 22:56, 18 August 2017 (UTC)
I suppose that could work as well. epicgenius (talk) 03:45, 19 August 2017 (UTC)
Epicgenius' edits restored what I considered the most commendable parts of 66.55.12.1's contribution. – @Beyond My Ken: As for "LGV", you might consider adding it to WP:ESL. -- Michael Bednarek (talk) 10:52, 19 August 2017 (UTC)
Thanks, I thought it was there already - or at least on some list. I have added it. Beyond My Ken (talk) 13:28, 19 August 2017 (UTC)

29th and 30th Streets[edit]

What happened to 29th Street and 30th Street?? Georgia guy (talk) 23:37, 11 November 2017 (UTC)

Not every street has an entry, i.e. 36th-39th, 60th, 62nd-65th, 67th-71st, 75th-78th, 81st-84th, 87th-88th, etc. Beyond My Ken (talk) 23:44, 11 November 2017 (UTC)
I don't mean why don't they have articles; I mean why aren't they in this list?? Are they defunct or were they renamed?? Georgia guy (talk) 23:53, 11 November 2017 (UTC)
I've just answered your question: not every street is included on the list. They still exist and have not been renamed. Beyond My Ken (talk) 00:27, 12 November 2017 (UTC)
But why aren't they on this list?? Georgia guy (talk) 00:45, 12 November 2017 (UTC)
Because nobody added them. Quite possibly, there is nothing interesting to say about them. Beyond My Ken (talk) 01:05, 12 November 2017 (UTC)
I have to say, however, that I still have a concern people will think that the reason they aren't on this list is because they don't exist. Any way to resolve this?? Georgia guy (talk) 00:37, 17 November 2017 (UTC)
If they have that concern, they can look at Google Maps and see that the streets are still there. Beyond My Ken (talk) 02:17, 17 November 2017 (UTC)
