walk the street, walked along the street
(a) He walked the street listening to music.
(b) He walked along the street listening to music.
Are both sentences grammartically correct? If so, which one is more commonly used and what's the difference?
Re: walk the street, walked along the street
Both are grammatically correct but the first one can have two meanings.

If you say, young teenage girls in Vancouver are walking the streets late at night, it means they are soliciting as prostitutes.
Myself I would use #2 or else you can say "he was walking down the street.."
