Description

A search for "Patricia Avenue, Winnipeg, MB" returns "Patricia Avenue, Normand Park, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada", which is incorrect. The neighborhood should be Fort Richmond; Normand Park is on the other side of the Red River.

If there is some way for me to fix this, my apologies, but I don't see it.

The "details" page http://open.mapquestapi.com/nominatim/v1/details.php?place_id=41531976 for Patricia Avenue (OSM: way 37923662) puts it in Normand Park (OSM: node 1241066354). The page at the "GOTO" link for Normand Park, http://open.mapquestapi.com/nominatim/v1/details.php?place_id=2120658249, says it is the parent of many items that should be children of Fort Richmond (OSM: node 373741869):

April Street (Point, ~1 miles, way 58868075, GOTO) Aurora Street (Point, ~1.2 miles, way 37913036, GOTO) Avila Avenue (Point, ~0.8 miles, way 37923664, GOTO) Grierson Avenue (Point, ~0.9 miles, way 58868073, GOTO) Kings Drive (Point, ~0.8 miles, way 30734866, GOTO) Leach Street (Point, ~1 miles, way 37923663, GOTO) Parkwood Place (Point, ~0.7 miles, way 58868249, GOTO) Patricia Avenue (Point, ~0.8 miles, way 37923662, GOTO) Seier Bay (Point, ~0.9 miles, way 58868248, GOTO) Townsend Avenue (Point, ~0.9 miles, way 37913037, GOTO)

Others are on the campus of the University of Manitoba (OSM: way 25275495):

Duckworth Quadrangle (Polygon, ~0.9 miles, way 60614757, GOTO) Administration Circle (Point, ~0.9 miles, way 60428223, GOTO) Alumni Lane (Point, ~0.7 miles, way 26020460, GOTO) Chancellors Circle (Polygon, ~0.9 miles, way 26020459, GOTO) Dafoe Road (Point, ~0.7 miles, way 26020447, GOTO) Freedman Crescent (Point, ~0.6 miles, way 30734805, GOTO) Gillson Street (Point, ~0.9 miles, way 30734830, GOTO) Maclean Crescent (Point, ~0.8 miles, way 30734861, GOTO) Saunderson Street (Point, ~0.6 miles, way 30734852, GOTO) University Crescent (Point, ~1.1 miles, way 26020338, GOTO)

This is a data problem. Fort Richmond and Normand Park are both mapped as place nodes only, so Nominatim has to take an educated guess which street belongs were. Add boundary polygons to improve the situation.
