I would leave the numbers as numbers.  Otherwise it gets a little too confusing for the mailmen.  And I would leave DC alone (and any other state abbreviation in order to avoid postal confusion).

“Seventieth” would be the correct way of spelling it.

I found this online: Figures are used in zip codes and housed numbers. Numbered streets are written out. For example: Fourteenth Street, not 14thStreet, or One Hundred and Twenty-fifth Street, not 125th Street.

I, however, just wrote “70th.” I’d also just write Washington DC.  The less writing, the better for me 🙂  (I’m also not a follower of all the etiqutte rules!)

I know locally where I am from 10th Street and Tenth Street can be different things so I would go with how people gave you their address in the first place.
