Since we moving to Brooklyn from Manhattan, I’ve head the pleasure of seeing the beautiful Kentile Floors sign from the F train window and from my walks around the hood. It’s so iconic and evocative of another time (it’s been up since the middle of the last century). I could not help but capture it with my iphone during different seasons, times of day, weather and from various vantage points. I consider it my Monet’s haystacks. So you can imagine my dismay when I noticed scaffolding over it and articles began popping up on Gothamist and in the NY Times announcing that it may be removed. Say it ain’t so?!

    Ugh! That seems to be happening more and more with historic signs and buildings, especially on the West Coast, where I live.
