 Sorry if this isn't being reported right, but I'm no expert, I just want
 to let you guys know of an issue I came across.

 Plugging in my address of '525 w 138 10031' returns zero search results.
 In Google Maps it took me straight to my house. Same empty results with
 all the variations I could think of:
 525 west 138 10031
 525 west 138 Street, 10031
 525 west 138 Street, NY, 10031
 525 west 138 Street, New York, NY, 10031

 Finally, someone suggested I add the 'th' to the street number - 138th. It
 finally worked.

 Sorry, but this is baaaaaad.
