    It varies depending on the part of the English-speaking world you live in. Some people say on Flower Street, others say in. In the area where I live, most people say on.

    According to Murphy (Essential grammar in Use U100 section A) in British English: in a street.

    We have had this discussion before. In American English and Canadian English "on the street" is used unless a specific address is used then "at" is used.
