49th Street (Manhattan)
The New York City
New York City
borough of Manhattan
Manhattan
contains 214 numbered east–west streets numbered from 1st to 228th, the majority of them created by the Commissioners' Plan of 1811. These streets do not run exactly east–west, because the grid plan is aligned with the Hudson River, rather than with the cardinal direction. Thus, the grid's "west" is approximately 29 degrees north of true west. The grid covers the length of the island from 14th Street north. All numbered streets carry an East or West prefix (for example, East 10th Street or West 10th Street), which changes from one to the other at Broadway below 8th Street, and at Fifth Avenue
Fifth Avenue
at 8th Street and above. The numbered streets carry crosstown traffic. In general, but with numerous exceptions, even-numbered streets are one-way eastbound and odd-numbered streets are one-way westbound

It uses the surface streets that existed before the elevated highway was built: West Street, Eleventh Avenue and Twelfth Avenue
