Finding all the house numbers on a street?

Given a street in a city, is it possible to find all the house numbers on that given street? This is for a mailing that will be sent to the homes on about a dozen different streets.

The city in question is Northbrook, IL and I went to the tax assessor web site, but it doesn't look like you can do a search on a street and get the associated house numbers.

The top-left box at this url seems to kind of do the trick if I just type in the street name, but I'm not sure how good the information is.

Are there any other resources that can be leveraged? Thanks.

Does this help at all? (PDF linky)

I zoomed in to about 400%. Combined with a regular Google maps search to find the general location of a street, it should work.

Other options: if you have access to ReferenceUSA, it excels at this. Check with your local public library.

That is pretty cool. I wonder what other places have that info.

(Anyway, back to the OP...) That PDF, cool as it is, won't help you for apartment buildings. But you probably knew that already.
