A 1929 luxury residence displays 2020’s best sign

When the luxury apartment building at 325 East 57th was completed in 1929, I wonder if any of the original tenants ever thought a handmade sign and two American flags would be hanging off the elegant canopy entrance.

But in the era of COVID-19, the people living in this building decided they had something to say. Think of it as the silent version of the nightly 7 p.m. cheer for all the New Yorkers working through the pandemic.

    We don’t have doormen in Los Angeles, so I hadn’t thought of that group. A cheering sign, indeed.

      Don’t forget the porters! They do the hard work in apartment buildings along with doormen.
