ZIP codes

ZIP stands for “Zoning Improvement Plan” and all three letters should be capitalized and never have periods. Two spaces are used between the state designation and the number.

For Adelphi, use 11530-0701 only if P.O. Box 701 is listed. If it just refers to 1 South Avenue, do not use the extension.
