Street Locator Tips

Although the graphic locator does a terrific job, it's not all that convenient to carry a computer around in your back pocket. Here's how you can figure out the cross streets given the building address and street or avenue.

Finding the street from a number and avenue:

To find the approximate cross street, take the building number and divide by 20; then add (or subtract) the magic number from the following table. (For example, 660 Madison Avenue would be 660/20=33 plus the Madison Avenue index from the table below (+27), 33+27=60th Street)

Avenue A....+3
Avenue B....+3
Avenue C....+3
Avenue D....+3

1st Ave +3
2nd Ave +3
3rd Ave +10
4th Ave +8
6th Ave -12
8th Ave +9
9th Ave +13
