This Was Dead Man's Curve

Manhattan: Union Square/
Broadway and 14th St.

Cablecars running along the Metropolitan Broadway line had to take this sharp turn west onto 14th Street at full speed in order to avoid stalling. The need to barrel through this intersection made it a dangerous spot, earning it the nickname Dead Man's Curve.
