Best Answer

Each city may have a different number of blocks in a mile, as they independently determine the size of their city blocks. There is no universal or standard size for city blocks. To determine how many blocks are equal to one mile, you first need to find the size of the blocks in the city you are asking about, and do the math.

5,280 feet equals one mile. To find out how many city blocks would equal a mile, divide 5,280 feet by the number of feet in a block in the city in question.

For example, the blocks in Tucson, Arizona are 400 feet long. Diving 5,280 by 400 means that 13.2 blocks would equal 1 mile.

Another example, there are long blocks from east to west and short blocks from north to south in Manhattan. There are 20 short blocks in one mile.
Depending upon where you are, there are approximately 20 city blocks to one mile.
