[OSINT] Finding Apartment Address Numbering/Naming Styles

Finding Almost Legit Apartment Addresses

This tip will go along side with Michael Bazzell’s guidance on finding addresses that appear legit. I noticed that Newegg helps you find your address while inputting it into the shipping fields. This address search provides a great deal of insight into different addresses, namely for apartments.

  1. Go to https://www.newegg.com/

  2. Add a random item to your cart

  3. Proceed to checkout

  4. In the Shipping Address, input an address you’d like to learn about (Ex. Park Towers South, 315 W 57th St, New York, NY 10019)

You will be able to see the apartments naming/number style. This will allow you to easily figure out what to put for a almost legit address. In this example, I could use “5L” or find the top floor and add 1 to it.
