I thought it might have been a typo, and you had meant to say "on the Noose."
I remember the first time I was in London and I asked a native London resident why everyone was, "Jay-walking." The person looked at me like I was speaking a foreign language.
And for those that don't know - jay walking is a common American term for people who don't cross a street at the cross walk or at an intersection but rather anywhere then traffic clears.
