Sign Up, Sign Down

When East Villagers want to communicate quickly with other East Villagers, they do so by hanging up a sign.

A flea market, a punk jamboree, a lost cat, another lost cat — hanging up signs on lamp posts and traffic light control boxes is time-tested and true!

However, no one wants to go back out and take down the signs once the event is over, so there are people whose job it is to do just that.

Here is a sample of their handiwork, as seen this past Monday afternoon, at the corner of St. Mark's Place and Avenue A:

Handiwork sample.

You can see where once a mass of tape and adhesive held up all sorts of important information, now are just their tattered remains.

And what do you suppose happens on Tuesday? If you guess that another sign goes up, you're right!

Another sign.

The cycle continues… in the East Village Today!
