au rue Balzac

why? Rue is feminine. Or why not just à .  Or is this another one of those times when french just works that way and there's no logical reason?

This question relates to:
French writing exercise "Filling in a form"

I think it’s because the address is actually “au 56, rue Balzac” (meaning at the number 56, Balzac Street) and numbers are masculine in French. LE numéro 56.
