El Indio Amazonico (Jackson Heights, Queens)

The Spring 2012 TDC Type Walk will return to Queens, specifically to the neighboring neighborhoods of Woodside and Jackson Heights. These are two ethnically strong neighborhoods—Irish, Filipino, Korean, Ecuadorean, Colombian, Chinese and more—which means that we will see a wide variety of commercial lettering as well as the usual institutional examples. Thus, there will be Irish pub lettering, public and parochial schools inscriptions, Catholic church inscriptions, botanica signs, Italian bakery signs, names of pre-war apartment buildings, possibly gravestones in a cemetery, and certainly many non-Latin scripts. As always, it will be a unique experience.
