In addition to the GCP and Union Turnpike as mentioned by AuxWarYearsCapt, Cross Island Parkway and Francis Lewis Blvd. technically intersect twice. Once in E295 first due area and again in E314 first due area. Although the one in 314's area is really Laurelton Parkway and Francis Lewis Blvd. many people call it the Cross Island Parkway as the name Laurelton Parway is not that well known and only runs a short distance from the merge of the Southern State Parkway to the curve into the Belt Parkway.

There are two W. Burnside and Universitys.  Also two W. Tremont and Grand Av.

In the Bronx  - On West Tremont & Grand Ave - one has been marked as Grand Ave South.

How about Tremont Ave & 177 St.  FOUR TIMES in the Bronx.....
# 1 - between Davidson & Grand Ave
# 2 - Grand Concourse
# 3 - West Farms Ave @ the end of the Sheridan Expy.
# 4 -  Throggs Neck - were the Cx Bronx Extension crosses Tremont Ave ( Near Eng 72's quarters)

Interstate 95 & the Hutchinson River Pkwy - only three times
# 1 - Bruckner Interchange
# 2 - Gun Hill Rd
# 3 - just south of the city line

Zerega Ave & Castle Hill Ave - twice
# 1 - near Tremont Ave
# 2 - near the East River @ the YMCA day camp / Hart St.

Jerome Ave & Major Deegan Expwy
# 1 @ the Yankee Stadium
# 2  @ East 233 St

Major Deegan Expwy & 233 St - twice
# 1 Just north of Eng 81 & Lad 46's quarters
# 2 - Just south of the Yonkers border line

Another confusing example for me in the Bronx is;

   Crotona Ave
   Katonah Ave

  Atlas, I never knew that there were so many places where the same named streets cross twice, or more. I know that I-95 and the Hutchinson River Pkwy always messed me up. I always figured there must be something wrong with the printing of my buff book map.

Willy D might have trouble with streets from time to time, but never has any difficulty in finding a McDonald's.

How about that there was two different locations for Exit # 9 & Interstate 295  or I-95 & exit 5 for a good number of years in the Bronx.

Many Years Ago, I spoke to a Chauffeur @ Flatbush & Flatlands Ave.s for a 'Relocator'  for TL 159,
[ if memory serves- it was TL 120 ]. Knowing that 120 Truck was from East N.Y, I asked if he ever felt lost Responding in the Flatlands / Flatbush / Marine Park Area.
His Reply: No, ya' just keep going down Flatbush Ave, Everything runs into Flatbush Ave. Sooner or Later... .  [ a nearly-accurate statement].

Also, This Morning [8/8/13], we had Another Example of Brooklyn's Anomalies -
an AH Job on Kent Street in Greenpoint, sometimes confused w/ Kent Ave in the
Brooklyn Navy Yard Neighborhood.
