Grand Central Parkway

GCP, digital

About 25 years ago if you were exiting the Grand Central Parkway at the Steinway Street exit (now it’s the 82nd Street exit) and was stopped at the light at the end of the ramp, you would have been lucky enough to see this mysterious writing stenciled on the guardrail on the driver’s side. It was a landmark significant only to silly kids like my sister and I as we made up reasons for its purpose.

Now, 25 years later, you can still see the letters—if you look carefully enough.
