Los Angeles is pretty big and on my commute I regularly drive through neighborhoods with 5-digit street addresses. It got me wondering … what’s the highest legitimate street address in the world?
(By “legitimate” I mean “part of a normal sequence of numerical addresses”. For example, there’s an office building I drive past with an address of 11111 Olympic Boulevard. That counts as legit because if you continue east on Olympic you’ll count down from 11,000 to 100. A few addresses might be skipped along the way, but 11111 Olympic accurately reflects how long the street is and how many different locations there are along it. It wasn’t just cooked up to be arbitrarily big for no reason.)
