I'm near Dallas and live on a cul-de-sac street. I've never heard it called a cove.
That's how I've always heard it used.
Does this mean Greg is the sun on the beach?
I live in Indiana on a cul-de-sac and nobody I've heard of calls it anything other than cul-de-sac.
Here in NJ people call them cul-de-sacs. The streets are usually named terrrace, court, or circle (as in Maple Terrace, Maple Court, or Maple Circle). As you enter the cul-de-sac, there is usually a sign that says "Dead End" or "No Outlet".
Exactly, as grew up in NJ.
Living on a cul-de-sac currently here in FL.
That's way too far to go to the beach! Takes me about 30 minutes with traffic to get to the Atlantic Ocean.
Must be nice!
The same in California with the addition of the name "place" and usually a "circle" indicates a short side street that has an outlet at both ends. The first 15 years we lived on our "circle" there was no "Dead End" sign and truck drivers would decide to use our street only to find themselves in a cul-de-sac.:eek2:
Oh .. THAT's what you mean by "cove"
Yeah, I always thought coves were on waterways.
I live on a "circle" that is a short 9-home street with an outlet on both ends. It's kind-of a quarter-circle connecting two streets that are perpendicular to each other.
I've seen streets (courts) in a few towns called "cove", but they were always streets near marinas, and all the streets had nautical-themed names. Other than that, it would be very unusual.
I use "cul-de-sac" but have heard the word "cove" used in place of it
Court is the only other name I have heard.....
Rumor has it that if you call D* and keep insisting that you "live in a cove", you likely will receive unflattering e-mails......up to and including death threats.
I've never known it to be anything other then Cul-De-Sac.
Well, at least 95% of the people here are normal.
I have lived in Virginia, Maryland, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Maryland again, Minnesota and Florida and have never heard of a Cul-De-Sac being called a cove. In Minnesota I lived on Scenic Circle, a Cul-De-Sac.
Takes me about five minutes, if I walk.
