Learn English – How to Write an Address in a Single Line


Not sure about the punctuation and I am finding conflicting resources online. Also, any opinion on whether I should spell out "South" or "Street?"

Here's what I've got so far (not my real address):

4 S. State St., Suite 6, Penfield, N.Y. 14611

P.S. This is for an email signature and the footer of a website.

For US addresses, the USPS Look Up A ZIP Code tool is definitive.

It renders standardized addresses without abbreviations for things like "South" or "Street:"

18455 S Figueroa St, Gardena CA 90248-4503

It renders suite numbers and the like sans punctuation as well:

1137 Huntington Dr Ste B1, South Pasadena CA 91030-4582

It may account for regional differences in rendering addresses, so try it with yours.
