If you live at streetnumber 36 for instance the mail-boxes would indicate for the groundfloor " 36 ", for the 1st floor " 36A or 36 /1 ", for the second floor " 36B or 36 /2 " and so on. If the 1st floor have for example more than one habitants it would be " 36 /1A ", " 36 /1B "... I wonder how it works in America?
