or

Do you know where the main street is?. Usually, there is only one question word-order in a question and you already have that order in 'Do you know' so, the rest of the question takes affirmative word-order subject (the main street) and verb (is).

but "Main Street" is the name of the street. I'm not asking where a main street is, I'm asking where "Main Street" is located. I guess I should've clarified that. Which of the three is correct under these circumstances then? Thank you

Hi again, you should have used capital and I shouldn't have included 'the'. However, the answer would still be the same: Do you know where Main Street is?. (At least this is what grammar says, usage may be different, especially with 'be').
Regards.
