    editing

    hey,

    i am editing a document in English, and i happen to stumble on the following sentence:

    The building is bounded to the north by Street # 71, to the east by street 62 and to the south by street 50.

    My question is: Is the use of the verb "bound" appropriate here??
    I need the reply asap.

    Thank you

    Yes, IMO

    There are 81 citations in: Corpus of Contemporary American English (COCA), so others share my opinion.
