23019 as an adress? Not a very "small town". the 23000 block would usually be between 230th and 231st streets. --Bp 03:06, 5 June 2006 (UTC)

House numbers don't always represent blocks. They could also represent mile markers. The buildings in the episode could be 22.960 and 23.019 miles along the road from some landmark or border. 9er 03:35, 5 June 2006 (UTC)
23019 is the correct address of Johnnie's Market. It's located at 23019 Waters Drive in Crestline, California. And, if you take a look at Crestline, California in Google Earth, you'll see it is a pretty small town. TFR 21:44, 12 January 2008 (CST)
If the numbers run for the whole county, not just the town, the three-digit addresses in the line could be 40 miles away - if Carbon Creek is in Bucks County, where Doylestown is, the starting point for those numbers is probably the Philidelphia city line. Granted, Northeastern cities and towns usually employ smaller numbers in heir borders, but if I had a dollar for every time a TV show which uses California to represent another part of the country showed a laughably inaccurate street address, I'd be a very rich man.--Ten-pint 22:02, December 1, 2009 (UTC)

Speculation Edit

I removed the following speculation. --From Andoria with Love 22:56, 26 June 2007 (UTC)

Its location is most likely in South Eastern Pennsylvania within a reasonable drive from Doylestown. The county seat of Bucks County is mentioned as the site of a baseball game attended by one of the Vulcans.
You removed it before, and it came back. I removed it again. — Morder (talk) 20:50, December 1, 2009 (UTC)

I agree on both counts, but I kinda think that location brings up another inconsistency. Maggie at one point bemoans that unless some miracle can be found to pay for it, Jack won't be able to go to college even though he highest test scores in the county; given that it holds some of the "Main Line" Philly suburbs, which at the time were (and still are, but there were a lot fewer then) some of the wealthiest areas in the US, in 1957 the science-math wunderkind with the highest boards in Bucks County, PA would've had half the Ivy League fighting over who could entice him to attend their school.--Ten-pint 22:02, December 1, 2009 (UTC)
