How Many City Blocks in a Mile?

The size of city blocks differ from city to city and can even vary from block to block in the same city. In Washington, DC there are 10 blocks per mile and in many places in New York City there are 20 blocks per mile. So where you are and when the city was designed and built will determine the number of city blocks in one mile.
