Juarez makes international news on a regular basis due to the mass murders of women over the years, the continual illegal crossing of the border and the fence being built to reduce it and currently, the drug wars and gang murders. Google should correct the problem and put el paso back on the map!

look at juarez with so many street lights, and here we have nothing, and besides can you tell me just one thing el paso is famous for???

Yes, and another thing. I ordered something from a store on line (my new favorite window shopping method) and, instead of sending it to my house, the store in New York sent it to the neighborhood post office because they said El Paso is a rural area!!!

Talking streets and house numbers

Devil's Tower IS a street in the Mountain Park neighborhood.
On the house information portion of this website, they have our address wrong and the picture was taken about 20 years ago. Since we've changed our entire home practically over the 32 years we've lived here, no picture or house price they use for these sites is EVER going to be up to date.

That would be the store's mistake and not a reflection on El Paso. I have an entire room full of collectibles from stores and sellers all over the world and none have had a problem shipping directly to my house. Other than USPS, UPS, or Fed EX, what information would a store have to tell them an address is too rural?
