Day 21

Malbone Street

January 20th, 2012

In the wake of the Malbone Street Wreck, one of the deadliest train crashes in US history, Malbone Street was rechristened Empire Boulevard, and straightened out in the process. That straightening led to the isolation, and survival, of this one single block still bearing the tragic name of Malbone.

    I love these little glimpses into the history of the city.

    What a horrible tragedy. Read through the link you provided there and the thought of all that happened is just horrible.
    Putting it in today’s standards, could you imagine all the lawsuits that would ensue from something like that? And back then only 2 awards of monies were given to widows. Boy how times change.
