"Bedlam Corners is the intersection at Forty-Second Street and Third Avenue. It has the reputation of being the noisiest in New York City. The confusing structural elements of the Neighborhood; the clattering old third avenue elevated trains echoed by its counterpart, the surface cars directly below; the forty-second street crosstown cars and the broadway trolley, the passenger cars, taxicabs, trucks and trailers; the construction gang of welders, stone cutters, drillers and diggers; all in unison, create a deafening bedlam that numbs the senses to the very roots." -Donald Vogel
