It is probably worth mentioning that street patterns are something which tell you a great deal about the period during which an area was laid out. In the UK, because the centres of most of our cities date from the Medieval period (long before the idea of urban planning had even been born and when little consideration was given to aesthetics or transportation) the associated street patterns tend to be ones of irregular, short streets - often completely unsuited to the demands of modern city centre life. Later, as cities grew during the Industrial Revolution years, the regular grid iron pattern of straight streets intersecting at right angles became the norm. Only in the 20th century have we seen geometric and imaginative layouts such as those found all over Phoenix..... but then Phoenix didn't exist in the Middles Ages nor even in the 19th century!
