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
Is this the shortest street in New York City? Reports indicate, yes.
2. Mill Lane, Financial District
3. Weehawken Street, West Village
4. Hunts Lane, Brooklyn Heights
5. Grace Court Alley, Brooklyn Heights
One of NYC’s former mews, carriage houses for horses.
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
8. Pomander Walk, Upper West Side
