    at Haggerston Park

    Is the preposition in the following sentence correct?
    "The house is directly at Haggerston Park."

    Re: at Haggerston Park

    There seems to be a missing word(verb) after "directly"(adverb).
    I am not a teacher.

    Re: at Haggerston Park

    The only preposition that makes sense to me there is 'opposite'.

    What's meant is that the house faces the park.

    Re: at Haggerston Park

    Then say that the house is directly facing Haggerston Park.

    If you must use a preposition, use 'opposite'.
