How do you specify your street address in German. For example if you live in street xyz how do you say "I live in xyz"?

For referring to a street you would usually say
Ich wohne in der Kirchenstraße 4. (I live in Church Street 4)
For a square (der Platz) or an alley (der Weg - loosely translated) you would use
Ich wohne am Kirchenplatz 4. (I live at Church Square 4) [pls correct me if it is on Church Square correctly]
Ich wohne am Van-Dyck-Weg 4. (I live in Van-Dyck-Alley 4)
For the two examples above you could also omit the am before the street name. However, I feel like at least in Austria this is not very common.
Ich wohne Kirchenplatz 4. (I live at Church Square 4) [pls correct me if it is on Church Square correctly]
Ich wohne Van-Dyck-Weg 4. (I live in Van-Dyck-Alley 4)
For referring to street names made up of more than one word you would most often use
Ich wohne An der Schanze 4. (I live at An der Schanze 4)
You would say
Ich wohne in der street name + number.
If the street is not a Straße but a Weg, you would say
Ich wohne am street name + number.
Ich wohne in der Goethestraße 5.
Ich wohne am Feldweg 3.
