“Cursed” Step in Rye?


I’m a local and ever since I was a child, I had been told never to step on the step with numbers down the alley by the sports shop. Everyone I know has been told the same thing, as it is meant to be bad luck to step on it.

I’m just curious as to where this story came from. Does anyone know?

Thanks.
