A Travesty at I’On

Today I’On fell victim to the shortsighted, one-size fits all philosophy of the local municipality and state highway department. Our lovely and properly scaled street signs, each with their own distinctive, borough-by-borough, character were replaced with oversized, characterless, generic street signs that are more appropriate for a highway than a pedestrian scaled neighborhood.


Perhaps a first world problem, but still a travesty for those who care about getting the details correct.
