Ridiculous Street Signs #24: Stairs Ahead- Flushing Meadows Park

Flushing Meadows ParkIt’s been a while since I last came across a bizarre or ridiculous street sign. I think the last time I spotted one was back in February. (From time to time, I also post signs contributed by friends and readers which can be a lot of fun!)

For those of you unfamiliar with these signs, check out my collection of Ridiculous Street Signs here.

Jollibee, A Fun Food Rec from Anthony Bourdain

The classic New York Kosher deli has been disappearing making it harder and harder to find a good pastrami sandwich. When I saw Ben’s on DDD, I had to go check it out since it was so close to home and I love deli!
