别人问我的

估计问native speaker 也只有翻白眼。

还是有区别的

"walk down the street" 是有目标性的在行走(至少知道走完这条街后会往哪边拐)

而 "walk along the street"可指无目的的(甚至该'走路人"的心态可以是:仅在这条街徘徊. )

我是瞎猜的,别轰我

walk down the road
1.走的是下坡路
2.可能是向南走(北上南下)

walk along the road
无所谓方向了,用手一指方向即可。

补充

另外,walk  down the street 有时指从市区(繁华区)向郊区走,同样,从郊区走向繁华区或市区也可用up;而walk alone the street 就没有这层意思。
