Stone’s throw away

DEFINITION

Nearby. The phrase illustrates in a rustic manner, how close one is: I could toss a stone that distance. In a simple way, most of us could not toss a stone further than 15 meters, so it does offer an approximate distance.

“Do you know where the library is? Yes, it’s a stone’s throw away from here.”
