    Yes. It is a block of buildings separated by a road.


    Within Manhattan, a north/south block (i.e. 49th STREET to 50th STREET) is 1/20 of a mile.


    East/west blocks (i.e. 7th AVENUE to 8th AVENUE) vary in width. Between avenues with NUMBERS, they are approx. 1/6 of a mile. If an avenue with a NAME is involved (i.e. Park Avenue), they are 1/10 to 1/12 of a mile.


    In boroughs outside Manhattan, or in Manhattan below Houston Street, block lengths vary, but they are usually between 1/10 and 1/20 of a mile.
