The Guinness World Record for the steepest street in the world is Baldwin Street in Dunedin, New Zealand. And ever since the designation was bestowed, the residents have had to put up with tourists. Living in a town that is draped over the Appalachian foothills, Baldwin Street doesn't seem all that steep to me, but Guinness has its standards for such things. Anyway, if another place wanted to challenge the record, Dunedin probably wouldn't put up much of a fight. Tom Scott visits Baldwin Street and gives us the story. -via Digg
