City Blocks in a Mile?

Answer

Determining how many city blocks are in a mile is not an exact science, and differs from city to city. Some cities even have different size blocks within the city so your answer will vary from location to location within the city. A city block refers to an element of urban planning and design, and is usually a rectangular area in a city. Many people think of a city block as averaging about 1/10 of a mile. Using this estimation there would be 10 blocks to a mile.
