Default Streets With The Same Name In Different Boroughs

I don't know if there's been another thread on the same topic, but I thought it would be interesting to see the differences and similarities between streets with the same name in different boroughs. I'll start:

Arlington Avenue, Staten Island vs. Arlington Avenue, Brooklyn

Union Avenue, Brooklyn vs. Union Avenue, Staten Island

Madison Avenue, Manhattan vs. Madison Avenue, Staten Island

Rector Street, Manhattan vs. Rector Street, Staten Island

Echo Place, Bronx vs. Echo Place, Staten Island

Tremont Avenue, Bronx vs. Tremont Avenue, Staten Island

Obviously, I'm using Staten Island examples because that's the borough I'm most familiar with, but you can use examples from the other boroughs (I guess you could use numbered streets if you want. For instance, West 37th Street, Manhattan vs. West 37th Street, Brooklyn).

Broadway Brooklyn vs. Broadway Queens

Broadway Manhattan vs. Broadway Bronx, not sure if that counts since it's an extension of the one in Manhattan

Grand Avenue Queens vs. Grand Avenue Bronx vs. Grand Avenue Staten Island

Metropolitan Avenue Queens/Brooklyn vs. Metropolitan Bronx

Clinton Street Manhattan vs. Clinton Street Brooklyn

Henry Street Manhattan vs. Henry Street Brooklyn

Bleecker Street Queens vs. Bleecker Street Manhattan

Fulton Street Brooklyn vs. Fulton Avenue Bronx

The streets should be named exactly the same. So Post Road vs. Post Avenue doesn't count. But, there is a Post Avenue, Staten Island that you could pit against Post Avenue, Manhattan

gotcha. I wasn't sure if you meant just the same name of streets or their entire name with the avenue, street etc.

There is a Broadway in in four of the five boroughs. Bronx has third avenue in Bronx Manhattan and in Brooklyn maybe in queens aswell.

Also many numbered streets and in Queens and the Bronx street numbers reach the 250s and 260s. I actually thought 271 Street would be the highest number I'd ever see but when I was driving to Mt. Rainier I saw a few street numbers in the 300s.

What do you mean? There's one in all 5 boroughs. The one in Manhattan continues as the one in The Bronx, there's one in Brooklyn (Williamsburg/East Williamsburg/Bushwick), one in Queens (Jackson Heights/Woodside), and one in Staten Island (West Brighton).

Actually, people on Staten Island consider the SI one distressed. It kind of is, but not at the end I showed (the distressed end is by Richmond Terrace).

Come to think of it, both the Post Avenue in Manhattan and the one on SI are kind of distressed.

I don't know if Union and Lorimer in Brooklyn is actually a distressed area but it looks kinda bleak in the link.
