Are you asking what kind or part of speech? Or, rather what is the difference? I am not sure whether you live in a different part of the world, but in the USA these terms are usually specific. Think of "carport" as opposed to "garage." A carport and a garage are both places one can park their vehicle. However, a carport is an open structure and a garage is an enclosed structure. Both can be attached to a house or detached. Therefore, they both have their own classifications, objects, features, etc. which help to identify and separate them.

In this same vein, a street is narrower than an avenue or boulevard. An avenue is usually more scenic and wider than a street. A boulevard has multiple lanes and usually a divider of some kind which separates the lanes which pass in opposite directions. We also have "drive" which means the streets do not end in a cove or circle, but rather you can drive quite a ways on them. A "circle" means that a street will usually circle back around to a common street, almost like the letter "c" or "u." A "cove" is exactly like its waterbound counterpart, it is a street that ends in an "o" shape; and, these coves often have houses which help classify it as a residenial area which does not receive much traffic.
