In Park Slope, a gem of a sign -- while it lasts
This Park Slope sign has everything going for it, except a future, given the shop's papered-up windows and "for lease" sign.
And what a timepiece it is! There seemed to be a moment in the 1960s when just about everything needed to be called a "center," even your corner laundromat.
The sign is elegantly executed in a cursive font, placed atop faux shingle. And the crowning element? The little washboard sign, which adds a nifty touch.
Perhaps the new occupants will open up an ironically named restaurant and preserve this sign, but we doubt it.
