In Delaware, the name of the locality, community, or neighborhood often precedes the listing of a larger regional area or city name within the address format. Local addresses are typically written in a style that is unique to the State of Delaware. This is especially true for most driver's licenses, ID cards, governmental mailings, and voter registrations. A sample address format is shown below:
11 Odessa Ave.
Wilmington, DE 19809
The United States Post Office acknowledges all addresses in Gwinhurst that do not include the regional "Wilmington" name. However, certain private package delivery services such as FedEx and UPS now require the inclusion of the word "Wilmington" in the address, even though Gwinhurst is not physically part of the City of Wilmington; nor is the City of Wilmington the nearest incorporated area. For example, the United States Post Office considers the following address format acceptable for Gwinhurst addresses but FedEx does not:
11 Odessa Ave.
Gwinhurst, DE 19809
Estimated number of houses -- 432 (ref: Data complied from New Castle County Parcel Search Information System)
