block
 n.— «Judy Hines holds the distinction of being one of Denver’s longest working prostitutes. “I started when I was 15, in 1974, working out of an apartment building behind Colfax and Pearl,” said the 46-year-old Hines. “It was easy money. When the easy money left, I decided to hit the block.” The block—slang for the street—is where Hines stayed, for the most part, until January.» —“A lifeline vs. life on the streets” by Amy Herdy Denver Post (Colo.) Mar. 28, 2005.
