at/in a district


Senior Member
hello, all.

I am a little confused about which preposition to use before the name of a district/neighbourhood.

eg.: I live at/in Brooklin

He has a house at/in Earl's Court.

Are both acceptable?

    For a city or a neighborhood, use "in."

    "At" is used for a specific point: "He has a house at the intersection of Nevern Road and Longridge Road."

    To make things more complicated, when we mention a street, we usually use "on:" "He has a house on Templeton Place."
