Culture on the Cheap
Montrose Avenue Mystery
As I reported last month, even Bushwick’s dog shit signs are getting a face lift in anticipation the numerous “hip” and “affluent” people who will (undoubtedly) flock to this up and coming neighborhood. Hell, when I see a masterpiece like this it makes me want to tell my landlord to go fuck himself and hop on the next B43 bus. Just kidding.
Anyhoo, as I was walking down Montrose Avenue today I noticed the now infamous sign at 165 has been replaced again!
Note the use of red marker and black quotation marks. I’m not too sure what’s up with the black lines, though. Follows is a picture of its predecessor.
I have to say I prefer the typography on this one, but nothing beats the original.
If any of “you” yes, you know the story behind this latest change in signage please shoot me an email; I’m dying to know.
