Wallet Card at one of Brooklyn's oldest street signs

Between 1964 and 1984, New York City street signs were color coded by borough, with black being the color for Brooklyn. Beginning in 1984 the city moved to uniform green signs for all boroughs. This black sign at the corner of 7th Avenue and 1st Street in Park Slope may be the last survivor of this style of sign.

  1. How neat! I've never seen a non-green street sign before, makes wonder if they did this color-coding anywhere else?
