I noticed on a recently printed GIS map that the abbreviated direction on some street names appeared to be combined with the street name itself. S. Huntington became SHUNTINGTON etc. This could be problematic if it happened to the wrong name. Like South Hits Street, North Ochers Street etc. Any more?

Builders often joked that my former Village Hall was located on Hassell Road.

Felch Street in Ann Arbor is between Hiscock and Cherry.

But that's not what this thread is about.

In Poughkeepsie, there is a White Street. No White Street runs through a rough ethnic neighborhood and So White Street which runs through an affluent primarily white neighbrhood. :-\

Somewhat off-topic, related to road signs blaring "69", as seen on I-75 In Troy, MI:
Exit 69 - Big Beaver Road :-c
