“Malted Milk” 1987

malted-Milk-sign-matt-weberTo each his own, but Malted Milk was the worst flavor ever invented! Why have rotten curdled milk when chocolate  was an option? I do miss the days when you could buy an Egg Cream anywhere in this town for 35¢…

Automat Sign 1986

AUTOMAT-SIGN-MATT-WEBERI wish I had photographed this sign in Kodachrome, but I also wish the sign had been saved. Maybe it is in some museum…We all remember the Horn & Hardart’s which were all over town back in the old days, but the truth is, the food wasn’t very good! People rave about the pies but I think the “Delivery System” was what people are getting all misty over. Putting a few coins in the slot and then having your food’s little window open up, was all the fun, not eating the soggy tuna sandwich…

This image can be purchased for little more than a slice of cheesecake…

And Moses said, “Let There be Traffic, Forever!”

GW-BRIDGE-CROSS-BRONX-SIGN-MATT-WEBERI love old signs. The Cross Bronx Expressway has had traffic problems for as long as I can recall. This sign may have predated the “parking lot” which it became, but I guess without it, things would even be worse…

The New York Cancer Hospital 1986

cancer-hospital-nyc-matt-weberFor over a quarter century, this old building sat vacant, except for a few homeless people who camped there. Fortunately the landmarks commission saved the building which has forty foot wide circular towers. Apparently Teddy Roosevelt’s throat cancer had a lot to do with the building being built. Cancer was finally being recognized as a major issue, and the building served those afflicted till 1955 when it found modern facilities elsewhere, as Sloan Kettering…

Higher-Goals-harlem-matt-weberThis is the long view of the artists attempt to persuade kids that there should be other and higher goals than playing in the NBA…
