Sunrise Highway starts in Montauk, turns into North and South Conduit Avenues in Queens, which then turns into Linden Boulevard in Brooklyn, which then turns into Caton Avenue, also in Brooklyn. But its all Route 27.
Pardon the nitpick, but you can't count route numbers as "streets", which typically run for hundreds of miles. In NYS, NY Route 5 runs 317 miles from Erie, PA to Albany. US Route 20 runs 2,542 miles -- from Boston to Oregon!

Actually, Jamaica Avenue is a lot longer than it might seem. It begins life as Lincoln Road in Brooklyn, then turns into East New York Avenue, and into Jamaica Avenue when it leaves Broadway Junction.

And for a little extra interesting trivia: Broadway (that is, Broadway in Manhattan) will take you straight into downtown Montreal. After leaving NYC, it becomes North Broadway in Yonkers, then turns into New York State Route 9, then 9/87, and eventually crosses the border into Quebec. But it's the same unbroken stretch of asphalt!

Actually, Jamaica Ave. (going east on it in Queens) becomes Jericho Turnpike at the Nassau County border and continues westward (referred to all along its entire route as Route 25) all the way to the furthest eastern tip of the North Fork of Suffolk County (at Orient Point). So, just from the Queens border (where Jamaica Ave. becomes Jericho Turnpike going eastbound) to Orient Point is approximately 90 miles. Then add the rest of the miles from where Jamaica Ave.starts in Brooklyn (where it meets Alantic Ave. & East New York Ave) to where it becomes Jericho Turnpike (at the Queens Nassau border, where Bellerose, Queens meets New Hyde Park in Nassau County) and you have approximately 11 miles for that strech. So in summary, the entire stretch of Jamaica Ave./Route 25 is approximately 100-104 miles long.

And Canal Street goes through the Holland Tunnel, Jersey City and in Newark connects to Interstate 95 and FLorida. THe other end of Canal Street is across the Manhattan bridge and ultimately to Montauk.

Of course nothing local beats a connection to I-80 in Teanneck and a dogleg left in San Francisco down to Tierra del Fuego.

Well, if you're only interested in roads that don't change their name, Broadway is still called Broadway all the way to Sleepy Hollow in Westchester, where it becomes Albany Post Road.

That is if you consider W. Tremont Ave and E. Tremont Ave to be seperate streets. If you consider them to be the same street, that's almost certainly longer than Grand Concourse. Also, isn't Jerome Ave longer than Grand Concourse anyway?

I'm not quite sure if 27 is the longest because 25 starts in Brooklyn as Jamaica Avenue, then Jericho Turnpike, then Middle Country Road from Smithtown to Riverhead, then Main Street in Riverhead, then Main Road from Riverhead to Greenport, then takes a turn onto Main Street, then from there to Orient Point it changes back to Main Road

Route 27 keeps the Sunrise Highway name for the first few blocks of Queens
