    Hello:

    How do you say "pasaje"? It's a little street in my country.

    Thanks a lot

    An alleyway or maybe a passageway.

    Lane or alley. (An alley usually runs through the middle of a block, between the backyards of those who live on the block.)

    I like the way how big streets are named: Avenue, Road, Boulevard,
    Street.

    I have seen that Street is used for smaller streets than the first three.

    And small streets are named:
    Drive, Way, Lane, Place, Court (Of course, this last one, is almost always reserved for cul-de-sac's.)

    Drive is used for streets that are longer than one block. A look at some city maps show that one-block streets are named Way, Lane, and Place.

    So, if "Pasaje" is a one-block street, it could be "NN Lane" or "NN Way" or "NN Place".

    In Ica, Perú, there is (or perhaps, there was) a one-block street, where no cars pass, only pedestrians and it is called "Pasaje Jesús María". It is built in such a way that no cars can pass through that street.
