comment How do you say “I live in” in German?
It would certainly be understood either way. I guess the problem is that the preposition to be used differs with the street name, e.g. "an der Straße" vs. "am Weg" vs. "an der Stiege" vs. "in (?) der Twiete" (I live in Hamburg ;-) ), so there is no one right preposition that catches them all. So for me, it's entirely possible that different regions use different prepositions. Unfortunately, the Atlas zur Deutschen Alltagssprache doesn't say anything about that.

I'm not sure about the usage "am Feldweg 3" as opposed to "im Feldweg 3" or even "Feldweg 3" without any preposition (see jera's answer). Could it be a regional thing?

comment Schibboleths für verschiedene norddeutsche Regionen?
@Jan, Pommern oder Vorpommern? "lütt" kenne ich auch aus Mecklenburg. In Hamburg hätte ich es vom Bauchgefühl auch gesehen, aber dann ist mir eingefallen, dass es hier z.B. eher "klein Erna" statt "lütt Erna" heißt.
