Between this lovely late 19th-century Brooklyn building and this horrific modern architectural eyesore – an ultramarine gem is patiently waiting to be unobscured once again.

Dear Mr. Hotshot,
I know you have amassed a huge collection of beautifully composed photographs of most (if not all) faded ads in Brooklyn and beyond. However, I can’t help being visually struck by these relics and instantly thinking of you. So, a hotshot like you probably already has snapped this one but if not, here ya go. (Taken somewhere around Fulton and Hicks).
Cheers,
Erin, The Pige

Thanks for thinking of me Erin!

While driving home from the Poconos, I was startled by this juxtaposition of ad and urban landscape, followed by the Mecca & Sons Trucking image just outside the Jersey City side of the Holland Tunnel Entrance. Minutes later in front of Ground Zero, I shot this distant fading ad that survived the 70s, 80s, 90s (as did myself) and the World Trade Center attack. I’m currently reading Bruce Bawer’s While Europe Slept. I lived in Amsterdam as a child and visit frequently enough to notice the brooding powderkeg of emotions and cultural clash with the Dutch and Islamic community. Poor Theo.
