PETERSON’S LANE, Prince’s Bay

Here’s a shot from long ago in Prince’s Bay, Staten Island, where I was bumbling along with a camera in 1998 when I spotted a pair of Staten Island classic black on gold street signs. These vinyl numbers first appeared in 1964 and were standard issue through the mid-1980s.

Peterson’s Lane doesn’t turn up on most Staten Island street maps, so it’s no wonder the DOT missed it at first. But find it they did, and this pair has long since been replaced.

    Growing up on Staten Island I remember nothing BUT these mustard yellow signs. I always thought it was cool that Staten Island and Manhattan shared the same color signage, while the other three boroughs had to make do with their own colors.
