The Memphis Man

You are here Home  > Miscellaneous >  The Memphis Man

The Memphis Man is a “ghost,” or some say an optical illusion, who haunts Memphis Street at 66th. The legend tells of a man waiting at a bus stop on a winter morning who was killed when a bus slid on some ice. An optical illusion makes it look to northbound drivers on Memphis Street like there’s a man leaning on a post near the bus stop. However, on closer inspection, the “man” turns out to be a utility pole.
