What's that thing called?

I was in a news group discussion recently and someone wanted to know what something was called, which brought in a lot of different answers, so I thought I'd post here and see what you folks call it.

When a sidewalk has a grassy area between it and the street, what is the grassy area called?

If you reply, please consider including where you learned that term (most likely where you grew up).

If I get any interesting results I'll post a summation.

(Oh if you don't want to post publically, you can email me at ferragus at sff dot net)
