Pitch in! This stylized if beat-up garbage can at a Murray Hill Gristedes dates to 1978, the heart of the “give a hoot don’t pollute” era, and a time when NYC streets were a mess of garbage, so much so that a campaign two years later would scold: “New York, let’s clean up New York.” #nyc #1970s #garbage #murrayhill #psa #advertising #trash #environmentalism

The old Hotel Tudor is now a Hilton, but the corporate hands haven’t gotten around to taking down the old sign, a Midtown East unofficial landmark. Hopefully it’s too costly and not worth the trouble to tear it down. This photo was taken from the 10th floor of WPIX, itself a neighborhood fixture since 1948. #signs #tudorcity #manhattan #vintage #oldnyc #murrayhill #kipsbay #unitednations #hotels #relic #artifacts #urbanarchaeology
