Faded ads for old-time food products

There used to be a big sign on the Coney Island Boardwalk for Hygrade brand hot dogs, which sound very 1960s school lunch-ish (and not particularly appetizing). This sign, in remarkably good condition, is on Sixth Avenue and Bleecker Street in a little park called Sir Winston Churchill Square.

Uneeda Biscuits were actually crackers introduced in 1898 by the new Nabisco company. Other Uneeda Biscuit ads survive on city buildings; this one can be found in downtown Brooklyn near the Manhattan Bridge.

    You have to love the not-so-subliminal suggestion by Nabisco to purchase their product. (“Uneeda Biscuit…Uneeda Biscuit…Uneeda Biscuit…” “I can’t explain it, but I really need a biscuit!”)
