In many communities in the US, all housenumbers are distance based,
often from a central chaining origin. They are indeed house numbers
when appearing on a postal address: "13430 North Black Canyon Highway,
Phoenix, Arizona" is 13.43 miles (yeah, I know, miles, benighted
Americans) north of Washington Street, or "4750 W. Peoria Avenue" is
4.75 miles west of Central Avenue.  The system goes out a long way,
some of the numbers are in the 40- and 50-thousands.
