Of course the most popular one is Broadway.

One that I discovered recently is Esplanade in the Bronx.

Anybody know of any others?

Yes, one word total, without the word "street"

I know it's technically two words, but there's a street on Staten Island named The Boulevard. Always found it kinda odd/cool.

There's an Esplanade in Brooklyn, too bad you can't drive a car there. Are bikes/mopeds considered vehicles?

Probably lots of lower Manhattan one-word streets if you leave out "Street" or "Lane" or "Place": Water, Wall, Pearl, Trinity, Exchange, New, Greenwich, Duane, Reade, Chambers, and on and on. And that's before you get to the Village: Bond, Great Jones, Mercer, Sullivan etc etc etc

Whoops, OK. Great Jones in two words. My bad.

You're missing the point... The OP meant streets that don't have a title following their names, so all of your examples don't count as they are all streets, lanes, places, etc.
