Mensagem: 

Place: in or on.


On is two-dimensional. We use it for a surface.  Don’t leave your things on the floor. There were pictures on the walls.

In is three-dimensional. I had ten pounds in my pocket. Who's that girl in the green dress?

Dependendo do contexto “in” pode dar uma ideia maior de rua (espaço) em relação à ideia menor de rua (via pública, caminho).
