NYC Shortest Streets MapMap via Curbed

Last year, we revealed what were the shortest streets in Manhattan and now Curbed NY has mapped the shortest streets in New York City! It doesn’t get any better than Fun Maps and superlatives. Many streets we’ve included in our list of NYC’s one-block streets like Gay Street, Renwick Street and Hunts Lane. There’s the really difficult to get into Pomander Walk (our photos of the inside here). And the very shortest, Edgar Street (and the close runner up, Mill Lane which has no addresses on it).

Here are the first eight:

1. Edgar Street, Financial District

Edgar Street-Financial District-Shortest Street-Battery Garage-Battery Park-NYC

Is this the shortest street in New York City? Reports indicate, yes.

2. Mill Lane, Financial District

Mill Lane-NYC Shortest Streets-Financial District-Wall Street-Stone Street-NYC Mill Lane. 

3. Weehawken Street, West Village

6. Jones Street, Greenwich Village

Not to be confused with Great Jones Street, read about the battle between Jones and Great Jones.

7. Gay Street, Greenwich Village
