    at the beginning a street or at the start? or both?

    Hi everyone,
    I want to make sure the way I corrected my pal is fine. He told me " . . I'm at the start of X street, . . . " I told him that it should be " at the beginning of a street not the start of ".

    was I right? , what is the most common usage in this situation?

    I'd say 'I'm at one end of X Street'.
