Delancey and Essex Intersection Is A Hell Zone
Here's a warning sounded by the Daily News today: The intersection of Essex and Delancey street is pretty much the worst place in the city to walk or drive a car or get in a taxi or do anything. Just, like, try not to go there, okay? It's scary. It's where Satan would be like, "Hey, this is a good place to cruise around in my fiery red automobile." Here are some of the horrifying statistics the Daily News compiled from state Department of Transportation records: Between 1998 and 2010 there were 523 motor vehicle accidents, 134 with bicyclists and pedestrians, three resulting in death. The intersection also yielded 258 injuries resulting from motor vehicle accidents. Proceed with caution. [NYDN]
