    Need a Comma?

    In the following sentence, do I need the comma right afer San Jose? I suppose I do need it but am not too sure. Please advise. Thank you.

    Mr. Lee sold his personal residence on 1818 Jones Street, San Jose, in year 2004.

    You don't need a comma after Jose, but you do need to say, "in the year 2004.

    Hello,
    Yes, in the year, but I am sure there must be a comma, because San Jose is an apposition (specification).
    Any more opinions?

    I seem to have heard people say the following:

    - I did this in (year) 2004, or I did this in year 2004.
    - I did this in the year of 2004.

    Thank you, anyway.

    In my opinion the right sentences are the following :

    I did this in 2004
    I did this in the year 2004 [ as mykwyner has already answered]



    See you,
