Winds going blowing through the city do spend up when blowing between the buildings, as the air is forced through tighter spaces & is channeled therefore speeding the wind up. This effect is called the Venturi Effect. So next time you are in the city remember the winds can be quite gusty, & often times are even gustier than out in an open field due to this effect.
