I've got a stack of Post-its and a Sharpie,

and I'm on a mission to re-postrophe New York City.

editing takes less then 5 minutes too...

I had been sent a picture of this ad on the subway a few months ago, but I couldn't resist it when I saw it for myself.

Obviously, everyone on the train looked at me like I was the crazy person when I corrected and photographed it..  Thanks Dr. Zizmor!!

in the spirit of the weekend...

This was sent in by one of my readers on Long Island. I'm hoping to be able to collect a number of these signs declaring the war cry:  LET US GO JET US!!!!!!!!

i'd like to buy a...

vowel, Pat.  I'd like an E, please.
wait, you know what?  I've changed my mind.  I'd like a T instead.
Note the addresses of these two yellow awning-ed businesses on 86th Street in Brooklyn.  It's a little hard to see on the photo shop but it is 1959. Unfortunately, the hair salon at 1961 had English teachers that taught them to proofread before spending thousands of dollars on signs.  That would have been amazing if three awnings in a row were highlighted today.

i. heart. periods.

This sign on the street in the East Village on E7 between 1st and A is quite charming with its excessive use of punctuation.

To be honest, I wasn't even sure how to correct this sign.  My initial reaction was resell, but then I second-guessed myself.  What, exactly, do they do with your clothes? Do they buy AND resell them?  Do they buy them FOR resale?  I have so many questions!!
