I'm making some test for the geocoder comparing it with google and I have noticed that the results depend a lot on the address format.

E.G.

These give addresses:

358 SEVENTH AVENUE MANHATTAN 10001
955 2ND AVENUE MANHATTAN 10022
530 AUDUBON AVENUE MANHATTAN 10040

Gives a wrong results, while these work just fine:

358 7th Ave, New York, NY 10001
955 2nd Ave, New York, NY 10022
530 Audubon Ave, New York, NY 10040

How reliable will be to go from the first group the second one using a library like this one and some strings mapping when required?

It should be reliable, I would imagine that the use of 'New York' versus 'Manhattan' as the issue that you are running into.

'New York' used here is consistent with the County/City name as it's a designation that is commonly interchange in New York City Boroughs. This database appears to be using 'New York' versus 'Manhattan' which is commonly used to describe the borough name.
