    cross the street vs cross the road

    Which of the sentences below is correct? Thank you.

    1. He helped an old lady cross the street in Taipei yesterday.
    2. He helped an old lady cross the road in Taipei yesterday.

    I'm quite sure that #1 is correct. I need to make sure whether #2 is also correct.

    Re: cross the street vs cross the road

    They mean the same. It makes no difference whether you use road or street.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
