Best Answer

In New York City, 17 to 20 street blocks (north/south blocks) equals a mile, and 5 to 10 avenue blocks equals a mile. As you can see, the length of the avenue blocks varies considerably. In Midtown and the Upper East Side, it's about 8 to 10 avenue blocks to a mile, while some avenue blocks on the Upper West Side are over a quarter of a mile long!
