Tips for Queens Addresses

Addresses in Queens can seem confusing at first. Not only is there 30th Street and 30th Avenue, but also 30th Drive and 30th Road, all next to one another. But the system is actually logical. Sequentially numbered avenues run east-to-west, and sequentially numbered streets run north-to-south. If there are any smaller roads between avenues, they have the same number as the nearest avenue and are called roads or drives. Thus, 30th Road is one block south of 30th Avenue. Similarly, smaller side roads between streets are called places or lanes. Additionally, most addresses have two pairs of numbers, separated by a hyphen. The first pair indicates the nearest cross street, and the second gives the location on the block. If this all still seems confusing to you, there's good news: locals are used to giving directions to visitors.
