Hello once again!
So, it seems I have this obsession with directions and where things are located. (see kitty cornered)
I am looking for the correct way to express:
Las Ramblas is a north-south street. It runs north-south.
I was in Barcelona and Las Ramblas was the street that was my reference point. Although this is not exactly correct, I told myself that it ran north-south and thus divided the city into an eastern side and a western side. I did this with another street which ran east-west and thus the city was very easy to get around in and I never got lost. (Well, except for the myriad of winding streets and alleyways everywhere…)
Would something like this work?
Las Ramblas está orientada norte-sur. Va norte-sur.
Is there a better way?
Is this done differently in different Spanish speaking countries?
