Does Wikidata really not let us say what suburb a thing is in?! (I guess I knew that already, but still… hurrumph or what?)

@abbe98 Yes, location (P276) is the most promising, but it needs a qualifier to make it work properly and I'm not sure which one it should be for suburb: wikidata.org/wiki/Property:P27

The trouble is that a suburb isn't an administrative territorial entity.

@samwilson I guess suburb would likely be the most specific location value possible in most cases. So you wouldn't need a qualifier.

Oh, that's a good thought. Location does already have an alias of 'neighborhood', so I guess it could perhaps have one of 'suburb' too!
