last month i mentioned my dream of taking photos of all the former roselyn bakery signs that have been rebranded by their new tenants.
yesterday, i happened to be in the neighborhood with a few spare minutes, so i parked and got some cellphone pics of this sign, at 38th street and ruckle. i particularly like the big green spot.
i tried to get some shots of the one downtown (now dunkin donuts), but i was driving and it was backlit, and my phone doesn't take very good photos, so those didn't turn out. (i've posted them to flickr anyway, so at least you can see what the sign looks like now.) i'll probably have to (pay to) park and bring a real camera in order to get some decent shots of that one.
i'm pretty sure there are more signs still out there, perhaps on the east or south sides, but i'm not exactly sure where.
update: post edited to reflect the correct spelling of "roselyn". a google image search for the correct spelling returns a couple tiny pics of old, unaltered signs, but i'd love a larger, better photo if anybody has one. ¶
