15008 Interpretation

3/31/2010 At the top left of the postcard my grandfather, Isaac David MESSINGER wrote,
"Brody Bangasee". Brody is the town where he lived, but what did he mean by Bangasse? Was that the street he lived on? Did he misspell it? Was there a street in Brody called 'Bangasee'? And what language is that written in, besides the phonetic English? Any suggestions would be grately appreciated. Thank you kindly,
