MHV's comments are totally on point - and it is interesting that Montreal and NYC have similar "vintages".
Oh, and as to paving. The first paved street in NYC was in lower Manhattan. It was paved in the 17th Century and was, and still is, called "Stone Street".
Oh, one other thing, please don't use the "duh" put-down thing. It's uncalled for and really insulting.
