Culture on the Cheap
Morris Park Photos Du Jour: Signs
As I indicated previously, today the Mister and I took our “staycation” to the Bronx. The objective of this trip was partake of real, honest-to-god Italian food in New York City’s lesser known “Little Italy”. I will go into the gustatory part of our trip a little later. This post is going to focus on the great variety of signage to be found in my former stomping grounds.
There were plenty run-of-the-mill signs of pick up your dog poo/stay of my lawn variety to be certain. On the other hand there were a quite few that stood head and shoulders above the others— or simply made you scratch your head and say “What the fuck”? Enjoy!
White Plains Road
This is not a sign per se, but it does make light of a failure to communicate.
Morris Park Avenue
A very Morris Park stimulus plan.
It’s the economy stupid!
I cannot find the words to describe this one. That’s why I shot video instead!
MJ and BTUS
Not here to shop? If so, this bodega says beat it!
This sight made me feel right at home.
Nothing like some good ol’ Bloomblight to bring two boroughs together! (For those of you who are wondering, the inside looks even worse than the outside.) But back to signs— and the strangest pair of messages I have ever seen gracing a single storefront. The following hail from 1084 Morris Park Avenue.
Sure, this one seems simple enough— but look at its companion found six feet to the left.
The stars-n-stripes, Lady Liberty and… HIV?
And with this puzzler I will conclude this installment of my Morris Park adventure. Next up: a selection of Morrisparkitecture. Stay tuned!
