  1. Sorry to read about this, but for the record, 65th Street runs, north to south, or south to north, so it would have been impossible for the driver to be driving west on 65th Street!

  2. Sorry, but if we’re going to be picky, 65th street runs Northwest, or Southeast, depending on direction.

    Look it up.
