Now that Dick Spears reminded me, of course he is

right. I remember some gangways consisting of a

narrow strip of concrete walk with dirt on one or both

sides. But the name -gangway- was only applied

(consistent with its etymology)to those places between

buildings designed for passage from the front to the

rear, not to any unpaved space between buildings. Empty

lots between buildings were universally referred to in

the long ago days of my Chicago youth as _prairies_

even if only 20 or 25 feet in width.
