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.)
Dlyons and Jinti:
I really apreciate your help. Thanks.
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.
No C Nada:
Wow, you know a lot. Thanks a lot
Separate names with a comma.
