Thank you :)

    I agree with to Tony S., however there is a problem. When addressing an apartment in the Bronx, Brooklyn and Staten Island, you need to add the city, state and zip code. The post office classifies the boroughs as cities.

    Example 1:

    Jane Doe

    123 East 169th Street

    Apt. 2A

    Bronx, NY 10456

    Example 2:

    Jane Doe

    65 Ocean Avenue

    Apt 6B

    Brooklyn, NY 11211

    Example 3:

    Jane Doe

    123 McLean Avenue

    Apt 6C

    Staten Island, NY 10311

    I hope this information was very helpful. Good Luck.

    There are actually TWO differences.

    If writing to an apartment in Manhattan, Bronx, Brooklyn or Staten Island.

    Ricky Ricardo

    623 East 68th Street

    Apt 4B

    New York, NY 10017

    Now, if writing to an apartment in Queens (or in rare instances elsewhere such as Co-Op City in the Bronx), there are DASHES that are part of the address. In Queens imparticular, they go by neighborhood names. You CAN write Queens, NY with the zip code and it WILL get to the destination but communities are prominent there (e.g. Flushing, Bayside, Astoria, Jamaica, Hollis, Maspeth, Sunnyside, Woodside, Corona, Douglaston, Ozone Park, Far Rockaway. Long Island City)

    So an address in Queens would look like this...

    Johnny Comelately

    52-04 32nd Avenue

    Apt. 35

    Astoria, NY 11106

    NOTE: The "52" is the nearest cross street to where the address is on 32nd Avenue.....i.e. : 52nd Street

    Want a "prestigious" address? Here's one from the wealthiest ZIP code in the U.S.:

    Joe Socialite

    200 East 66th Street

    Apt. A-2102

    New York, NY 10021

    And here's something more "modest:"

    Joe Workingman

    35-21 30th Avenue

    Astoria, NY 11106

    (and yes, this is an NYC address -- Astoria is part of Queens; one of the five boroughs).

    These are "real" addresses, with slight modifications to "protect the innocent" of course!

    Good luck!

    Just like the address to any other apartment in the US

    John Doe

    110 E. 82nd St. Apt. 2B

    New York, NY 12345

    If you live in Brooklyn, put down "1234 Sesame Street, Brooklyn, NY" It's a borough, but as far as the USPS is concerned, you could list it as a city. For certain parts of Queens, you put down your greater neighborhood. (Bayside, Ridgewood, etc) The most important thing is the zip code, though. As long as it's correct, the mail will get delivered to the right place.
