Description

Sorry if this isn't being reported right, but I'm no expert, I just want to let you guys know of an issue I came across.

Plugging in my address of '525 w 138 10031' returns zero search results. In Google Maps it took me straight to my house. Same empty results with all the variations I could think of:
525 west 138 10031
525 west 138 Street, 10031
525 west 138 Street, NY, 10031
525 west 138 Street, New York, NY, 10031

Finally, someone suggested I add the 'th' to the street number - 138th. It finally worked.

Sorry, but this is baaaaaad.

The reverse is also an issue. As an example, the 8307 130th Street, Surrey, BC should return the results for 8307 130 Street, Surrey, BC

There are also obvious similar situations with 1st, 2nd and 3rd
