Fun:Ghost town

Jump to: navigation, search

A ghost town is a formerly occupied town, now deserted. They are common in the American West, and, less obviously after so long, in parts of Europe decimated by the Black Plague.

Ghost town is frequently used as a metaphor for an area with greatly reduced traffic, as in "the financial area became a virtual ghost town on the weekends".

"Ghost Town" is also a song by the Specials.
