3. Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary
Street
   The street called "Straight" at Damascus (Acts 9:11) is "a long
   broad street, running from east to west, about a mile in length,
   and forming the principal thoroughfare in the city." In Oriental
   towns streets are usually narrow and irregular and filthy (Ps.
   18:42; Isa. 10:6). "It is remarkable," says Porter, "that all
   the important cities of Palestine and Syria Samaria, Caesarea,
   Gerasa, Bozrah, Damascus, Palmyra, had their 'straight streets'
   running through the centre of the city, and lined with stately
   rows of columns. The most perfect now remaining are those of
   Palmyra and Gerasa, where long ranges of the columns still
   stand.", Through Samaria, etc.
