I have a picture with a couple sitting on a bench in the sidewalk. Can I say they're sitting on the street?
I know we can use this phrase to describe the locations of buildings relative to a steet. I googled the related pictures and pictures came up showing people sitting in an alley, people literally in the steet (maybe having suicidal thoughts) also people sitting on curbs. Is it an idiomatic expression that includes all these that is something like near or on/in any types of roads or path? If yes does it always go with the or a is also possible?
I also came across this sense which made me alittle perplexed to jump into any kind of conclusion!
