Broken: "Main apartments" sign

MainsignA reader named Terry points out:

I like the slogan for the apartment - "Living on Main," when they clearly live on 5th Street in Branson, Missouri.


It might be on Main street as the address is in the 100s, Fifth might just be the cross street.

Wow. I have seen some lame things passing as "broken" lately, but this is 100% NOT BROKEN.

A quick check at google maps shows that 102 N. Fifth St. is in fact on Main street in Branson MO.,+Branson,+MO+65616

What has happened to this site? It’s gone down hill in the past weeks, months. Maybe nothing is broken any more?

Branson isn't exactly a big town, and Main St. is extremely obvious. How could someone take this photograph and not be aware of this? Or did someone just come across this picture online and make a bad assumption?

No no, they meant Bronson, Missouri.

No, i can see how this is broken. It isnt broken as such that it isn't located on Main at all, the sign is broken because it mentions "livin' on main" yet its address is not on main.

A much better way to describe the location would to have said "Located on the Corner of Main and Fifth"

If you're at the corner of Main and Fifth, then you're "living on Main." I don't understand how that can be confusing. Just because the official address says Fifth doesn't mean that you're not "on" Main. When you walk down Main, you come to the building. When you look out your window, you see Main St. How is this anything but being "on" Main? It's also "on" Fifth, but that doesn't have the ring to it that the community there sees in Main.

Livin' on Main seems to be the name of the apartment complex. It's not claiming to be located on Main St.; that's just the name of the place. My Maui Jim sunglasses weren't made in Maui either...
