Dear Cops:

Urgent message, found on the back of a Bank of America deposit envelope: "Dear: Cops
Two guys are chasing us."

Signs of the times

An ode to the denture, Henry Street

Hand-lettered sign. Believe it or not, this place is right next door to the Pretty Young Pimp store, South Willamsburg

Wooden letters and late afternoon light, South Williamsburg

Manhole cover designed by Lawrence Weiner, Union Square

Some sort of private, members only club. Oh, all the velvet ropes of Beacon, NY!

My latest obsession: hand-lettered signs. Charming, but would you trust your finest suit to a tailor whose letter design looks like this? Ludlow Street

Sneaky wheatpaste in Chinatown: two mushrooms in love, Good Value!
