Abandoned prison restroom with long trough-style urinal off a low-traffic area, as described in John Cheever's 1977 novel FALCONER. To quote the author, this is where the inmates went after dinner "to fuck themselves." Themselves but not each other -- there were unwritten rules. Looking at other penises was okay, but not into another man's eyes. Touching another man was not allowed, except for the shoulder. A grim place, not gay by any definition, and certainly not the fantasy one-for-all tearoom scenes depicted in gay porn videos.

Since The Valley in Cheever's award-winning novel Falconer was located on an upper floor, the origin of its name was obscure. Perhaps the name was coined to reference the trench- or trough-shaped nature of the elderly urinal itself.

-- "Where's Harry?"

-- "He went to The Valley after dinner."

-- 'When do you think he'll be back in our wing?"

-- "As late as possible, if I know Harry."

The area located in northern Delaware where every marijuana smoking teenager with a car or five dollars goes to smoke a blunt/joint/and even in some cases, pieces. Located in between Hockessin, Greenville, and 202, and even extends into parts of PA. It is very woodsy, secluded, scenic, and the roads are windy which makes driving on its roads fun and enjoyable to be high on. The smell of marijuana and the sound of shitty sound systems are always present in the valley.
P1 - Jus got a gram. Wanna hit the Valley?
P2 - Yeah I got 5 on it.

To those of us from New England, "The Valley" most often refers to the Merrimack Valley, a bi-state area along the Merrimack River. Most of the Valley is suburban. The largest cities are Haverhill, MA, Lawrence, MA, Lowell, MA, Nashua, NH, Manchester, NH, and Concord, NH. All of these cities are former mill towns powered by the river.

If you live in the Merrimack Valley region, chances are you tell everyone you're from the "Boston Area", have a Boston accent, and cheer for all the Boston sports teams, even though Boston is an hour away. About half the people in your high school graduating class went to drug rehab before the age of 18. Unless your zip code is 01810, 05501, 01899, 01921, 01985, 01886, 03110, 03031, 03049, or 03087, you are working class/poor. Chances are, if you are from the working-class areas you pretend to be rich, while if you are from the rich areas you pretend to be "ghetto". Ethnic pride is high in The Valley. You will see more Irish, Italian, Canadian, Lebanese, Cambodian, Brazilian, Puerto Rican, and Dominican flags than American ones, though almost every other street is named for a KIA war soldier.

All in all, The Valley is a place of contradictions, not to mention a shitty place to live and an even shittier place to say you're from.
Situation #1:

Angie: I'm from the Boston Area.

Milly: Wonderful! Where in Boston?

Angie: Methuen.

Milly: Hmmmm that's funny. I live in Boston and have never heard of any place in the city called Methuen.

Angie: Ughh, actually, it's in The Valley. And it's not Andover, Boxford, or Windham.

Milly: Ew! Do you live in a slum? Are your kids potheads? Do you shop at Marshall's? DO YOU SPEAK FLUENT ENGLISH?!

Angie: What?

Situation #2:

Ryan: Yo, yo, I rep The Valley.

Santos: Sweet man. What part?

Ryan: Amherst.

Santos: Shit man, you ain't ghetto! You probably live in a colonial mansion. Try living in Nashua with a drug bust or gang fight outside your house every ten minutes.

Ryan: No way homie. Am-town has way more oxy and e than Trashua, cause we have the bank to buy all our shit off you!

The Valley: the trashiest place in America's northeast.

A word short for The Central Valley in California. The Valley is made up of both the Sacramento and San Joaquin Valleys.

It is full of farms and suburbs. Most people who live in the valley came from the bay and work in the bay. About 6.5 million people live in the valley and it is the fastest growing area of California.

The valley is completely surrounded by mountains, resulting in hella smoggy and hot conditions in the summer. If wildfires start in the mountains then a thick fog of smoke settles in the valley. In the winter it rains all the time and the fog gets so thick you literally can't see your feet if you are standing.

The valley cities are mostly crowded and have nothing but shopping centers and houses. Kids in the valley like to go to parties and concerts. It doesnt matter what day of the week it is, you can most likely find a party or concert somewhere.

Kids from the valley like to represent. If you ask them where they are from they will most likely say "the valley" or their area code, like "the 209".
Guy 1: "hey dude, where you from?"
Guy 2: "I'm from the valley"
Guy 1: "That's sick, your from LA?"
Guy 2: "Nah dude, the valley. You know, the 209 fool!"

The smooth curve that forms as a girl is lying on her side.

The line starts at her hips, flows down to her tiny 22-24" waist, then back up to the sides of her boobs, where her arm meets her torso.

The Valley is then the height difference usually from hip to waist, the bigger the difference, the bigger the valley the girl has.

Asian girls typically have very "shallow" valleys. But this is okay because they have tiny SIZE 1 hips.

"Dude, did you see the valley on that girl?!!"

"Yes dude, it makes me want to go riding in the mountains....up the hills and down in the valley."
