If you ever need a quick, go-to street name for somewhere in the US, here’s a map of the most common street names by state.

how for the love of god are there states where 2nd is a more common name than 1st??????? how did that happen????

OKAY I KNOW THIS. The thing is that in some towns, ‘Main Street’ is considered an unofficial 1st street, and numbering starts with 2. Because other towns don’t have a Main Street and do start with 1st, but basically all of them have 2nd, 2nd streets can outnumber either of the others. I think 2nd is actually the most common nationwide because of this.

…and then there’s that one state where the most popular one is “3rd”

I give up
