    One of our biggest attractions in Dunedin (forget the
    Albatross Sanctuary, the penguins, the seals, the
    architecture and the history) is Baldwin Street the
    world's steepest street.

    But we could be about to lose that title to the Welsh!

    The cost in tourism will be billions. The goverment will
    have to adjust their figures for a few years.................

    Also worthy of consideration is the crookedest street in the world (or said to be anyway):

    There was an earthquake in Anchorage, 1958 ish, not sure of the year but I remember seeing the street before and after, it seems 4th street in downtown Anchorage was split up and down by about 20 feet, split right down the middle and now business on the downslope side had to make a steep staircase to access those at the bottom.

    You can't fool me. The crookedest street in the world is Ocean Boulevard, Palm Beach, Florida.

    Are you referring to the people who live there, or the roadbed?
