Kitschy yellow store signs of the 1970s

Yellow with black, yellow with red, yellow with blue—there’s just something about yellow that screams New York City in the 1970s.

I almost picture Walter Matthau walking out of one of these stores.

The American Stamp Manufacturing Company is downtown on Fulton Street.

I love the simplicity of the Swan Piano Co. sign, on Greenpoint Avenue in Queens.

Who doesn’t love a shoetrician? Also Fulton Street (you can go across the street and browse rubber stamps while u wait for your repairs).
