Nevins Street

Recently saw this helpful (note the braille)
sign in the subway, and have been
looking for others like it.  Haven't spotted
any yet, but it does look very old.
Maybe they've mostly been removed.

[Linking back to sign, signs.]


  1. I don’t know how a blind person would stumble across that sign unless there were auditory clues about (unlikely). How would they know where to “look”? But rubbing one’s fingers all over that sign to read the braille (and then, say, noshing on a sandwich) does look like it could lead a person directly to another transportation mode.

  2. I'm not sure I'd want to put my fingers on that, if I were blind! Nice find though.

  3. Neat sign. I wonder how old it actually is. In Everett, Wa. there used to be crossing signs with braille also.

  4. Old and rusty is beautiful! I get lost with eyesight ... deep admiration for someone without it who can get around a big city!

  5. Seeing so much rust inside the subway does not inspire confidence!
