At the Corner of Danger and Keep Your Eyes Peeled

Misery Corner
Dead Man's Corner
Upside Down Christ
Corner of the Little Birds
Corner of the Lonely Soul

These are all intersections in the Venezuelan capital of Caracas, where the streets have no names (as far as most people are concerned), the buildings have names instead of numbers, and the landmarks are all known by colorful monikers.

More here.

What a nice naming system they have going on here! Strange names always makes me feel giddy. It's sad that the city seems to be in a somewhat state of disrepair though; looks like it holds so much interesting stories.
