Right about now I know about Florida street that crosses Michigan near the dearborn border, and Hawaii that crosses Livernois below Warren...

BTW correction on Michigan... it goes out MUCH farther than Dearborn's border

Huh? Florida crosses (meaning - continues across) Michigan? Where might the part of Florida south of Michigan be hiding?

Florida

A numbered-street question: What is the highest numbered street in Detroit, e.g., 32th Street?

If my guess is correct, it is the street on which there was a Catholic school where I once taught its fifth grade. [I haven't checked this one out, though.]

New York Street, off Cadiuex north of Mack.

There's an Ontario Street there too, but that's a province.

This is an extensive area of streets named after foreign places, like Munich and Cornwall.

I'm going by memory so I could be mistaken, but isn't there a Maryland St. on the far east side?

Yeah Gary, I'm suprised I missed that. It is two blocks east of Alter and runs from Jefferson near St. Ambrose church north through GPP and then into Detroit after Mack.
