street zip lookup

Here is an useful service that I discovered today.
The service retrieves the list of streets and street addresses for a given zip code.

So how is this useful? When new vendors or clients gives me incomplete or unreadable addresses, or I didn't catch the complete address over the cellphone / answering machine. It's usually pretty easy to get zip code, but the street name might be misspelled. I can verify mailing address via The problem is when the address look up fails, I had no way to browse similar addresses to see which one might be a match. With this service, it's easy to browse through a list of valid street names for the zip code.
