Who knows Latin? How do you say "street at the edge of the woods"?

Best I have so far is "via ora silva." I live on Edgewood Street, and the house number disappeared during construction. I will replace the street number, but it now occurs to me to write the address above the front door using Roman numerals and the Latin version of the street name.

I guess "Edgewood Street" would be "Street at the Edge of the Woods" (or the edge of the forest).

What's the best way to say that in Latin? Would "Via Ora Silva" be correct?

    No, there's problems with the grammar.

    I'm thinking it would be something like,

    via apud silvae ora

    Good luck if this is for a project or something. Glad to help.

    Source(s): i've taken latin in school for two years? not that great a source, but whatever. l
