Thanks for help

Hi Baxo,

The following links were found by using the Google search function at the top of each forum page to search the forum. It’s a very useful function.

IMO,

You see the street in a 3D way, along which there are trees, houses, etc., and you are among them: “in the street”; pro-BrE.
You see the street in a 2D way as a board, on which everything stands including yourself: “on the street”; pro-AmE.

Thank you guys :slight_smile:
