New York City
He was disembarking from a streetcar at West 74th Street and Central Park West in New York City, when an electric-powered taxicab, driven by Arthur Smith, struck him. He died from his injuries the next morning. Smith was arrested and charged with manslaughter but was acquitted on the grounds that it was unintentional. A plaque has marked the site since 13 September 1999.
