Named streets generally run north-south and are alphabetized starting at the Potomac River.
Progressing westward, this is the alphabetizing sequence:
One-syllable names (Ball Street to Wayne Street)
Two-syllable names (Adams to Woodrow)
Three-syllable names (Abingdon to Yucatan)
Four-syllable names (Arizona being the only street in this sequence)”
