From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


A dead end is a cul-de-sac, a street or alley with only a single entry/exit. The term may also refer to:

New York City neighborhood

  • The name applied to the Manhattan streets in the East 50's that dead-ended at the East River before the Franklin D. Roosevelt Drive was built. This name was occasioned by the extreme poverty found there, and the crime that occurred as a result. This area was the inspiration for the films.
