Woodhaven and Richmond Hill
Sunday, June 10
11 am to 2 pm
$15 for SEGD 212 Conference attendees

The next lettering tour of New York will be of the adjoining neighborhoods of Woodhaven and Richmond Hill in Queens, accessible via the elevated J train. Both have solid business areas with good examples of pre-digital commercial lettering: paint shops, jewelers, candy stores, beauty salons and pet shops. There is also the usual institutional lettering to be found in New York on churches, schools and government buildings. Neither neighborhood has yet been gentrified and they have a gritty, yet pleasant, ambiance that is a strong contrast to Manhattan and the hipster neighborhoods of Brooklyn.

This walk has been cancelled and will be rescheduled for later in 2012.
