Certainly not safe to assume this. Offhand cobblestone, brick, and
concrete are pretty easy to find. I wouldn't be surprised to find gravel
or compacted roads in the outer parts of the outer boroughs.

Famously there's still one dirt "road" in Manhattan (actually an
alley... with too many access tags, it seems)
