street

https://www.etymonline.com/word/Street

A rare example of a word derived from Latin through Old English. From Latin (via) strata, "paved road". Ultimately from PIE root stere-, "to spread", from which many English words are derived.

Street is related to stretch and, more distantly, to structure.
