Melbourne is designed to be a grid, at least towards the center of the city. For the whole Central Business District (CBD),the blocks are similarly-sized and placed methodically, so as to line up with one another, which makes navigating them on foot very easy and straightforward. It also means that a lot of little laneways have popped up over the years, leading to many small and interesting nooks and crannies to form within these city blocks.
