The MTA’s Embarrassing ‘Dealncey’ Spelling Error
This is a Queens-bound M train, the next stop is learning how to spell.
An eagle-eyed observer riding the M train this week noticed that the Delancey Street/Essex Street station was completely misspelled. The embarrassing error – scrolling the onboard announcement display – read as “Dealncey.”
How does this slip through?
Misspellings of Delancey are surely common, yet usually it’s the omission of the second E from the name.
