Sign of the Times

The building that houses Moishe's Bake Shop, on Second Avenue, has been undergoing renovation recently. My suspicion is that the owners are preparing to sell it.

While their main sign is down, they've taped this one inside the door:

Taped inside the door.

You have to hand it to them — they have a sense of humor: The bottom of the E is missing here just as it is from their regular sign!

Since this is taped to the door, is it up all the time, even when they're closed? That could cause some confusion, especially when East Villagers are turned out of the bars at 4:00am and want to eat some pastries!

Also, you'll notice that the angle of the words "Support Our Neighborhood Stores" is different than its bounding rectangle.

It's the sign of the times… in the East Village Today!

  1. :-) that sign looks like someone put together a bunch of images in photoshop. :-)


    1. It does! Which is why I don't understand why they didn't fix the E.

  2. :-) maybe they only how to 'paste' in photoshop? :-)
