Re: Metropolitan Avenue

Thinking about this some more, I had once come up with the notion of a "perfect" street and bus combination, wherein a single bus route traverses the entire stretch of a given street in both directions. There are fewer examples of those than you would think.

In Queens I can think of:

Woodhaven Blvd - Q11, Q21, Q52, Q53
(in the old days none of these qualified; even the Q11 ran on 94th St. instead of Woodhaven in the southernmost portion.)

Queens Blvd - Q60

Dry Harbor Road - Q29

Thomson Ave - Q39
(unless you count the half-block stretch east of Van Dam St, which is just an "entrance ramp" to Queens Blvd)

Main St. - Q44 (only since it was rerouted to the Van Wyck station)

Cross Bay Blvd / Q21 used to qualify until it was routed through Lindenwood.

Also worthy of consideration: if a portion of a street is one-way but the route traverses that street in that direction. That would include
Hollis Ave - Q2

Anyone want to offer suggestions for the other boroughs?
