City Installs New Wayfinding Post but Spells ‘Delancey’ Wrong
There it is. A new wayfinding signpost on Clinton Street. With a misspelling, no less.
The city installed the eight-foot map at the corner of Delancey Street within the last few days to help tourists navigate the neighborhood. But it spelled Delancey without the penultimate “e.”
These wayfinding obelisks are part of the city’s overall WalkNYC initiative, first launched in 2013. The installations essentially make the Lower East Side a more accessible, less intimidating experience for the masses. Not for the locals, of course, despite what the Department of Transportation says.
