Hi,

I'm wondering which preposition to use in the following:

John lives at/on 133 Second Avenue.

I'd appreciate your help.

The AmE usage is to say that someone lives "at" an address: "John lives at 133 Second Avenue".

It would be OK to say "he lives on 2nd Ave", meaning in a house or apartment on 2nd Ave, not actually on the street; but that's giving the general location, not the address.
