### How many New York City blocks is 0.28 miles?

In New York City, approximately 17 to 20 street blocks
(north/south blocks) equals a mile, and about 5 to 10 avenue blocks
(east/west blocks) equals a mile. The length of the avenue blocks
varies considerably, depending on what neighborhood you're in.
If we say that 17 street blocks is a mile, then 1 block equals
approximately 0.06 miles. If we say that 20 street blocks is a
mile, then 1 block equals 0.05 miles. So, 5 street blocks would
equal 0.25 to 0.30 miles. So, approximately 5 street blocks
equals 0.28 miles.
If we say that 5 avenue blocks equals 1 mile, then 1 avenue
block equal 0.2 miles. If we say that 10 avenue blocks equals 1
mile, then 1 avenue block equals 0.1 miles. If 5 avenue blocks
equals 1 mile, then 1.5 avenue blocks equals 0.3 miles. If 10
avenue blocks equals 1 mile, then 3 avenue blocks equals 0.3 miles.
So, approximately 1.5 to 3 avenue blocks equals 0.28
miles.
