Question about English (US)

Hello! Could you please explain to me why the definite article is put before "incredibly narrow streets" in the following passage:
"Any reasonably attentive schoolchild can tell you that the Great Fire of London started here, in Pudding Lane. But did it? Planning regulations have been ignored for decades, and in some cases centuries. The City is a forest of wood and highly flammable tar-paper, with houses leaning out into the incredibly narrow streets until they are close enough to kiss. Minimum street widths are routinely flouted; thatched roofs are illegal but common."

As I see it, it doesn't tell about any particular London's streets.
