A vintage ad on Middagh Street is fading fast

Isn’t it a beauty? An Ephemeral reader sent in this photo of the lovely “to let flats” ad at 70 Middagh Street in Brooklyn Heights.


As wonderfully preserved as it’s been for so many years (how many exactly, I have no idea), recent construction work has worsened its weathered, faded appearance. What a shame.
