Ooh, here's one:

1640 Riverside Drive

(I'd give the city, but that would give the answer away)

AuRa got this one right- it was Nero Wolfe (plus Archie, Theodore and Fritz).

In fairness, Rex Stout sometimes varied the address a little (usually putting the house somewhere in the Hudson River), but it was always on West 35th.

That was the lady passenger, in Harry Chapin's great song, "Taxi."

" 'Where you going to, my lady blue?
It's a shame you ruined your gown in the rain.'
She just looked out the window,
And said '16 Parkside Lane.' "

Her name was "Sue".

OK, it's actually the last house on the right. And, I'll add that the further down the block you went, the badder it got.

As an unrelated bonus:

Copperhead Road. Going for a visit is definitely contra-indicated. Need First, Middle, and Lastname.

Hint #2: the owner was a Chief Warrant Officer at the Naval Postgraduate School.
Final hint: the family's story inspired two movies and a TV series.

Nobody remembers the Beardsleys of Yours, Mine, and Ours fame? This was where the real Frank Beardsley lived, and served as the first home for the entire family after he expanded it.
