When using " n,e,w,or s" as direction indicator before s proper street name ,how do you decide if it is part of the street name. Is it N. 24th St., or n. 24th st , and /or is it. w.Williams rd. or W. Williams Rd. or some combination there off? Thank you! Oh yeah, tell me how my grammar is here too, thanks.
