Heh.

Actually, I believe the avenues are perfectly parallel to the extent 19th century surveying techniques allowed. And anyway, they don't run north-south. They run about 29 degrees east of north.

If you look at a US Geological Survey map of a rural area out west, where all the township and section lines are laid out, you see occasional breaks in the nice pattern of straight lines and 90 degree angles. Those are where they have to make adjustments for the curvature of the earth.
