What major cities have grids laid out on the North/South axis? Are there advantages or reasons for this?

The streets of Chicago, Beijing, Kyoto are organized on the N/S/E/W axis. Are there other major cities (more curious about older cities) that are similarly designed? Is there a reason these cities would be laid out like that?
