This New Zealand Street Is So Steep It Makes The Houses Look Like They’re Sinking

There are plenty of picture-perfect spots in New Zealand, but none quite as Instagram-worthy as Baldwin Street in Dunedin, also known as the steepest street in the world. The street is only 350 meters long, but for every 2.86 horizontal meters, there is a rise of one meter. In other words, though the street itself is less than a quarter mile long, for every ~9 horizontal feet you walk, you’re climbing about three feet. Photos of the street are mind bending, especially when you look at the houses that are built right into the hill.
