Homes with nearly identical addresses cause confusion

Posted: Updated:
EASTCHESTER -

Two homes with nearly identical addresses in two towns about a half-mile apart are confusing delivery drivers and first responders while worrying the homeowners.

David Keiler who lives at 182 New Wilmot Road in Eastchester said he had to make sure that he gave the cross streets when his wife was having breathing problems five years ago.

He wanted to ensure that the ambulance didn't go to the private street 182 Wilmot Road in New Rochelle, which GPS apps like Waze and Google Maps can't seem to get right.

News 12 put in 182 New Wilmot Road in the Waze app and a bunch of addresses came up: 182 Wilmot Road, New Wilmot Road, 182 Old Wilmot Road in Scarsdale and a Wilmot Circle.

News 12 reached out to Google Maps and Waze about the mix-up, but so far hasn't heard back. News 12  also tried to contact the people living at the home in New Rochelle, but no one was there.
