Weehawken Street, located as far west in the Village as you can go, bears the title of Manhattan’s smallest street. I can only assume it also holds one other record…
Having the most signs asking people not to pee on it:
Literally, there are four signs hung on the block all requesting the same courtesy…
Some in better shape than others.
It makes sense – Weehawken Street is a pretty quiet street in between the more trafficked West 10th & Christopher. But what’s especially funny is, I see that when Ephemeral New York did a similar post in 2008, the signs were more varied:
“Weehawken is the smallest street in Manhattan – Help keep the beauty of it. Please do not urinate or litter.”
“Warning! Cabbies, Truckers, Cabs & Pedestrians! Do not urinate on this block! Your plate is being taken down!”
So please: DO NOT URINATE ON WEEHAWKEN STREET!
