A particularly bad street in a bad neighborhood. Often applied to the worst street in the area, but there can be numerous "Death Rows" in a given neighborhood.
Some streets that are only dangerous for certain people can also be tagged as death row.
People often risk death by traveling down certain streets, either at particular times, or at any time. Causes of death can include: Armed robbery, muggings, gang wars, family feuds, random shootings/knife attacks, drive by shootings, reckless drivers, and stepping on and getting stuck by used needles.

ex. 3) Damn, Terry fucked up so bad with Jullie, the whole street she lives on is death row for him. Her whole family is out to get him.
