When writing a list of streets using "and", I can obviously pluralize.

The event will take place on Maple, Walnut, and Orange Streets.

When using "or", however, which is correct/best?

  • The event will take place on Maple, Walnut, or Orange Streets.
  • The event will take place on Maple, Walnut, or Orange Street.
  • The event will take place on Maple St, Walnut St, or Orange St.

Perhaps the confusion is in the proper titles.

Orange Street is a title.

Orange St. is a title.

There is no plural of the title.

Therefore, while it is vernacular to use "Maple, Walnut, or Orange Streets," the proper phrase is:

"...Maple Street, Walnut Street, [and][or] Orange Street."
