The above photo taken on Sunday proves once again that the correct spelling of the name Bleecker eludes even people who work on the street.
The ‘C’ seems to be rather disposable. But those prone to this common error shouldn’t feel too bad. No less an authority than the city Department of Transportation has made the same mistake, actually posting street signs with the misspelling. Oh, and so has the MTA, and it seems, just about everyone at some point.
Anyway, here we go one more time: It’s B L E E C K E R. Case closed.
