Q:between 52nd and 53rd streets 和 between 52nd and 53rd street 何者正確?

A:between 52nd and 53rd streets (在第 52 和第 53 街之間) 才對,因為 between 意為「兩者之間」,只有複數才符合這樣的意思。這項寫法亦適用於其他巷道,如 between 10th and 11th avenues (在第 10 和第 11 大道之間)。當然,我們也可以寫成 between 52nd street and 53rd street 及 between 10th avenue and 11th avenue,但簡潔是英文的主要特色之一。
