NYC Locator ver 1.0 Copyright November 5, 1988
Tony Tortorelli All rights reserved
The purpose of this program is to find the "approximate" cross-street
in Manhattan based upon a valid building address. It is based upon
the locator chart that is found on the back of certain business
cards or maps.
The syntax of the program is:
NYC "Building Number" "Avenue Name"
For example, entering NYC 101 Park Avenue will tell you that the
approximate cross-street is 39th street. (In this example, the
result is off by one as 101 Park Avenue is at 40th Street).
Abbreviations are valid, therefore, "NYC 101 P" would be valid in
the preceding example. You also have the option of entering either
the avenue number or name (3rd Avenue or Third Avenue, which can be
abbreviated as "3" or "T").
The program will also give a listing of street addresses when using
the /s switch. NYC /s will return:
Street Numbers commence as follows:
EAST SIDE WEST SIDE
1 at 5th Avenue 1 at 5th Avenue
101 at Park or 4th Avenue 101 at Ave. of the Americas
201 at 3rd Avenue 201 at 7th Avenue
301 at 2nd Avenue 301 at 8th Avenue
401 at 1st Avenue 401 at 9th Avenue
501 at York or Avenue A 501 at 10th Avenue
601 at Avenue B 601 at 11th Avenue
The program is written is C and is compiled under TurboC 2.0. The
source code is included and will compile under TurboC and QuickC.
