GROWING UP in Cleveland, Ohio, I knew that strip between the sidewalk and the street as the “tree lawn.” Eventually, I came to learn it had different names in different regions. These include the boulevard, the parking—and, particularly when it’s paved and sans trees, the devil’s strip.
Wikipedia lists a bunch of names, with some indication of regional or dialectical specifics.
Will you add to this lexicon? What’s it called in your neck of the woods? And, in replying, please mention which woods. ds
