How do I search a US Census using an address? I'm trying to find in the
US 1920 census a Joseph Cohen living at 242 Eldridge Street (NY, NY).

He might also be in the 1930's (or even the 1910) US Census.
You can't search any US census *directly* by address. You need to find
first the enumeration district in which the address is located; you
can do that at a NARA office. Then you can go through the enumeration
sheets for that district, which is not as onerous a task as it may
seem, to find the exact address in question.
