Sky street (and the blocks around it) are odd. The shadows are darker. The air is damper. The mood is bleak and errie. The street is silent, all the noise muted somehow. However, you can always seem to hear someone crying.
From down the block, it appears to be yet another street, with the same kinds of building as those around it. Yet it feels perpetually gloomy. Some say the street is cursed, but no mage nor priest has ever detected it. But those of a dark disposition find themselves drawn to it. Those that live here always have a feeling of despair or depression. The street (and environs) have become a slum of sort, an island inside the prosperous guild neighborhood it resides. It is the place where the lost dreamers go, and those with broken hearts. They drink and commiserate in the taverns that now fill the street. There are many a cheap room to rent, as there always seems to be vacancies.
Of course there are ghosts to be seen. They appear in the corner of your eye, or late at night, or sometimes in the shadows. The shades are those who have killed themselves in the area. Some say they cause the depression, others say they are there to stop others from doing the same. Either way, the street touches the otherside in a way that is not healthy.

Yawn. A haunted block. It is an idea that might be useful.
I could see this as part of a longer list -- perhaps a 30 of city streets. But I just don't feel it has enough to carry a full sub on its own. I realize it's an old sub, so perhaps it's time for a revisit?
A starting point - yes.
While I normally love names which are somewhat incongruous to what they're naming, such as 'Street of Happy Smiles' for a murderous alley for example, in this case, a different name may lend this shadow-haunted block some aesthetic oomph.
