    What are adjective endings for prepositional phrase?

    If I wrote "in the restaurant on Pushkin street" or "in the restaurant on Tverskaya street" what would be the endings for Pushkin or Tverskaya?

    в ресторане на тверская улице
    в ресторане на пушкинская улице

    улицa is feminine and takes ending "e" for prepositional case.
    What is the ending for <<тверская>> and <<пушкинская>>?
    Do these adjectives take on a prepositional ending or just the nominative endings for adjectives?

    Thanks

    No.

    It would be
    в ресторане на улице Тверского, but that would be if Тверский was named after a man with that the name Тверский. The restaurant on the street of Tverskiy.
    But Тверский is the adjective of the city of Тверь

    Therefore it would be в ресторане на Тверской улице.

    There is a road in Moscow called Тверская улица i believe.

    I think it works like this:

    Streets named after people, events, etc. the name goes after, in the genitive case.



    Площадь революции - Revolution Square
    Улица Горького - Gor'kiy Street (Maksim Gor'kiy, famous author)

    Streets named after places, the name goes before in the adjectival form:

    Невский проспект - Neva Avenue (named after Petersburg's Neva river)

    The gender, case and number determine adjective endings

    The adjective must agree in gender, case and number with the noun that it modifies.
    Since улице is gender feminine, case prepositional, and number singular, the adjective must be the same.
    In accordance with this rule the endings for adjectives must be:

    Он в ресторане на тверской улице

    Он в ресторане на пушкинской улице

    Tverskaya street is a street in Moscow that can be seen at: http://www.voentour.com/excursion/tverskaya.shtml

    Тверь is "she", feminine, so in no way it would be на улице Тверя
    Зверь is "he", masculine, so if there exist any "streat of the Beast", it could be said
    на улице Зверя

    btw, isn't saibot native? his post is 100% correct
    Оригинал: Call me ASAP.

    Как уж заговорили о Твери—

    [запевая]
    Эх... вдоль по Питерской, по Тверской-Ямской
    Да ох ой по Тверской-Ямской да с колокольчиком.
    ...
    Эх... не лёд трещит, не комар пищит
    Это кум до кумы судака тащит
    [/запевания]

    For those of you who live on the left coast, do you know that the Russians came down from Аляска and set up a fort north of SF? Fort Ross. Крепость Росс.

    Annual festival there at the end of July, near my birthday this year. Do a google search, you'll find smth, look at slavyanka.org, and plan to be there! I'm locked up here on the right coast without enough $ or vacation days left this year. You go, I'll give you an intro. !!

    I visited Fort Ross a few times, one visit coincided with the russian festival. It was quite impressive: cannon shooting, theatrical performance, a sailboat arriving to a small bay out of thick fog etc!

    And there is a good place for mushroom hunting nearby BTW.

    I've heard a lot of рыжики grow in Australia, but noobody picks them because people think they are poisonous. May be they are really poisonous there, I don't know.
