    Re: meaning of 220E

    The address is oddly written.

    It could be that the buliding number is 220, and the apartment or office suite is E.

    It could be that the building number is 220, and it's East Avenue 28.

    Usually in the US, we'd say 28th Avenue on an address.

    220 28th Avenue, Apartment E
    220E 28th Avenue
    220 E. 28th Avenue (that would be East 28th)

    I can't tell with your example.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Simple way to try and figure this out is to type the address given into Google maps and see what it shows.

    220E. Ave.28, los angeles california - Google Maps

    It treats "E Avenue 28" as the street name. The streets around that one also have direction in front, not behind the number of the street.

    It is odd for America for it to be Avenue 28, and not 28th Avenue. But It seems it is.

    Seattle has the same thing. Every time I'm there I get confused. Maybe it's a West coast thing?
