I gave Nat Torkington this advice about twenty years ago, and I think it's still good.

  • Houston Street. “Houston” is pronounced /ˈhaʊstɨn/, which is different from the pronunciation of Houston, Texas (/ˈhjuːstɨn/).

  • Avenue of the Americas. This is always pronounced “Sixth Avenue”.

  • Greenwich Village. “Greenwich” is pronounced /ðə/.
