A street is a road but a road isn’t always a street. A road can also be an avenue or a boulevard—it’s the general term for anything that connects two points. From there, the names of roads can be shaped by their environment and/or the form of the road. A drive is a long winding road that can be shaped by mountains or a lake. Place is a narrow road with no throughway. And just as there is no rule book to building a city, these roads and other don’t always correspond with their described classifications.
