Ways of finding a list of street addresses by street names include consulting reverse directories and performing reverse lookup Internet searches. Specialized directories by companies such as Cole and Polk publish directories that list streets for each community by name and then list addresses and telephone numbers for each street.
Cole and Polk directories are normally available in public libraries. There are also Internet search engines such as MelissaData.com that list addresses according to street names. Using MelissaData, individuals enter a ZIP code to have a list of streets within that ZIP code displayed. Users can then select a street to have a list of addresses on that street displayed along with the ZIP plus four postal code for that address.
