Signs we love: Catania's Shoes in Pelham Bay
Our recent tour through Pelham Bay turned up many interesting gems, but our favorite signage has to belong to Catania's Shoes on Westchester Avenue.
Look at the streamlined feel to the sign, and the wonderful curved lettering in "Shoes." It's a museum piece, and locals are lucky to have it.
The prominent sign for Florsheim is a nice touch, too, and the doors themselves have all manner of interesting stickers, some of which are classics.
More Pelham Bay classics coming soon. And share your signs here.
