The true miracle is that this, the last of Brooklyn’s ‘humpback’ street signs, is still in place. Out of thousands this is the last one. In fact I haven’t been by here in a few months — I hope it’s still there. Really, the Brooklyn Museum or a local outfit should claim it before the Dapartment of Transportation finds it and throws it out.
And that’s not all. Look closely at the hump–you’ll see a street that’s no longer there.
The two braces at the bottom likely held a white arrow-shaped one -way sign that was marked “Police Department.”
I wish I remembered everything I heard in school in addition to this stuff. I’d be a lot richer.
