No Parking … Anytime

January 5, 2009

I was walking past Brooklyn’s 10th Street when the signs on this garage and doorway commanded my attention. Believe me, I wouldn’t dream of parking there. In fact, I don’t even want to ring the bell or knock hard … anytime.

You have to have standars

December 3, 2008

I couldn’t help noticing the sign on this truck, which was parked at 41st Street and Fifth Avenue in Manhattan. Apparently, the business that owns the vehicle is committed to maintaining a certain “standar” of quality. Good thing they are builders and not publishers.

Mysteries of Manhattan: Phon Baseb

August 15, 2008

This sign was displayed on the sidewalk in front of a deli on 14th Street. It seems like the store is selling something called phon baseb. Sounds as though it might be a tasty Vietnamese dish, but … perhaps not. Whatever phon baseb is, it’s a mystery to me.

Amazing Things Are Happening Here

This enormous translucent banner hangs across three glass and steel pedestrian bridges at New York-Presbyterian Hospital on Fort Washington Avenue. The bridges allow people (and materials) to move from one building to another without going outside.

Click on the photo for a larger view and you’ll see visitors, students and employees using the glassed-in walkways at this massive teaching hospital in Upper Manhattan.

Radio 53 AM

This sign was posted on a traffic signal control box near Union Square. As always, you can click on the image for a larger view.

You must listen to Christ Radio 53 AM Radio on 24 hours or the Devil will take you and your family and make bats out of all of you.

Christ will protect you. Devil is Boogie Man. Beautiful gorgeous Mary and Christ will hug and kiss you forever in Heaven. For keeping the ten commandments.

It’s so easy to keep the ten commandments. Teen ages and people in Hell are suffering terrible.

The View From There

June 1, 2008

More from the archives.

This enormous sign advertising Calvin Klein jeans, now gone, used to dominate the intersection of Houston and Crosby Streets. Please note: the sign is not a billboard. It is a large cloth banner, illegally hung right over the windows (you can see a few window ledges peeking out from the bottom).

How’d you like to wake up and see that blocking out your view?
