Every once in a while, you come across a road in CNY and you realize it's just spooky. You get the feeling that the headless horseman, or a zombie, or some kind of spirit is ready to sneak up behind you at any moment.

Central New York is full of these roads. These are the roads you nominated as the creepiest road in the area.

Cedar Lake Road in Clayville is one of those roads. Between the gravel road surface and the corn growing closely on either side, you feel like you just stepped out of a Stephen King novel. If you were going to film a horror movie in Central New York, the opening scene would be shot here.

Railroad Street, Clayville This is a pretty creepy road, too. The houses are right next to the railroad tracks which then wind into the distance.

Gray-Wilmurt Road, Cold Brook The road is creepy enough, but the abandoned houses and the old cemetery is enough to give anyone the heebie-jeebies. The house (above) is actually in Poland but could star in any Hollywood horror movie.

Barnes Avenue Bridge, Utica This is a scary area for real-life reasons: a gang has been prowling the area where Barnes Avenue reaches the Erie Canal Trail, on the other side of this long-closed bridge. Below the bridge, homeless people have set up camp.

Tea Cup Road, Cold Brook This dead-end road is virtually deserted, except for a few homes and abandoned trailers. The sound of leaves blowing and snapping twigs in the encroaching woods will have you hurrying back the way you came in minutes.

Starr Hill Road, Remsen The legend of Starr Hill Road has been well-documents. Even in broad daylight, the headstones of people who have been dead hundreds of years will send a chill down your spine.

Steuben Valley Road, Holland Patent With no one around for miles, and no lights to be seen anywhere, this is not the road where you'd want to run out of gas.

What do you think? Are there scarier roads in CNY? What are they?
