Yahoo! Search Local Results in Main Search

I have not seen this posted in any of the SEO/SEM forums, conduct a search on construction new york in Yahoo! Search. You see Yahoo! brings up local yellow page results at the top, very much like Google.

But what is interesting is that when you do the same search in Yahoo but turn around the word to read new york construction, then no local results are triggered.

Is this on purpose? Well, Google serves up the same local results for both construction new york and new york construction.
