The Bronx is up and the Battery’s Down

New York, New York it’s a hell of a town…

I was all set to wax rhapsodic about this ad I saw on the subway and carry on and on about how it encapsulates so much of what I love about New York and how we may all be so different but we really coexist and do it quite nicely, and so what if we’re judgmental about shoes when really we respect one another’s fundamental beliefs blah blah and blah.

And then, I noticed a typo in one of the sign’s nine words. Just like that, my goodwill toward humankind — the ad-writing portion of humankind in particular — evaporated. Le sigh.

The ad is still pretty funny, though.
