    In the U.S. a "city block" is the section of land inbetween 4 roads.  Is this term used elsewhere?

    Will this term be recognized in Europe, Asia and other areas?

    Well, it certainly will in Canada, at least.  I'm not sure how prevalent it is as an idiom in the UK, but thanks to Hollywood and American TV shows, I'm guessing that it will be at least minimally familiar all across the English-speaking world.
