Carvel Curve


Carvel Curve: Local police slang for curve in Route 7 north of Route 35, scene of many accidents; so called because old Carvel Ice Cream stand, 1960s until 1977, was nearby; since 1977 has been Ridgefield Ice Cream, but “Carvel Curve” was still used by police 30 years later; in 1976, the Police Commission began a campaign to have the state straighten or at least improve the curve — in 1987-88, state reduced the severity of the curve in conjunction with widening the road to four lanes at that point, but accidents still occur there.
