I'd go with the official address.  It's not rare to find addresses in the
US where what goes on an envelope doesn't match what the street is actually
called.  Nor is it rare to find the wiki to be wrong, such as is the case
with lanes, where excluding lanes for motorcyclists and bicyclists is in
the wiki but fails on the ground verifiability.
