I've always loved the simplicity of many Midwestern cities with their N-S-E-W grid layouts.  Most N-S main streets in Cleveland are numbered.  E-W streets have names.  It was hard to get truly lost inside the city limits unless you went out in the western fringes by the airport.

Remember Boston is heavily British and Irish and thus created in true madness but with cool names.

The Midwest/Midlands was built by Germans and Scandinavians and everything was created with an overwhelming sense of order.  Oddly enough Public Utilities (Socialism) is still deeply embedded in the Midland "Red" States.  For example toll roads don't really exist out on the prairie.

Nonsense, If you drink like my midwestern relatives no sensible city planners will keep you from getting hopelessly lost in the old town tonight.

That's different, everybody gets lost in the Ozone again.

I remember when they were doing the Big Dig in Boston. I'm still pretty sure it would have been faster and cheaper to just level the whole city and start over.
