I learned "blacktop" growing up in Westchester County, just north of
NYC, and in NYC itself. To me the term was self-evident: there was the
black street outside the house, whose surface got soft on very hot
summer days. And I used the term recently without thinking about it in a
song (, wrt the paving
material of a driveway.
