Well I like the sign at Fussy Friends. It's a small neighborhood store and that is reflected in the signage.

I like the Two Boots Sign and their pizza. (Cleopatra Jones) I happen to think it creates a festive mood during the night on a nondescript Newark Ave. As for Portland Maine... that is a historic district area and the signs create a historical Mariner City image along with the cobblestone streets.

What I would like to see is a mandate that everyone who celebrates Christmas be required to use only white lights on the interior and exterior of their homes or businesses. Uniformity is important.

It sounds like you my friend need a hobby. Don't tell me what to do ever, and take your own advice as to what to do. Maybe if you actually thought things out instead of constantly starting ridiculous topics, you wouldn't get the responses you do. Ever heard the saying, "ask a stupid question, get a stupid answer"?


Exactly what Mr. Johnson said.

It is totally subjective.
I think Skinner's signage looks sort of ridiculous. Faux-something or other. Looks like someones idea of what might belong in an English Village.
It's all in context. If you put a hip Craft Beer place in the National Discount Store and kept the sign as is, a lot of people would think it was cool. A la Live Bait.
I think those things should be allowed to develop naturally.

Where I used to live in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, which is a very desirable, safe, and getting-expensive neighborhood, the main drag is Manhattan Avenue and all the Polish places have very generic signage, like plastic, bad typefaces, 99 cent store looking stuff. Still people flock to Greenpoint in droves now. One block over from Manhattan Ave there is Franklin St, which is filled with "hipster-signage," very nice, well-thought out, quaint signs. I like both, but I must say I find the crappiness of Manhattan Ave signs kind of endearing.

I'm in complete agreement regarding subjectiveness ~ but Portland, Maine and other historic downtowns look the way that they do because the town mandates that all storefronts have wood signs, i.e., wood carved, gold leaf, etc. You're not open for business unless the locals give the thumbs up to your shop's sign.

I now understand, thanks to other posts here, that Newark Ave. is not part of the historic district ~ was surprised by this ~ and thank you to whoever called this out.

Skinner's Loft might be a better example of a business that most seem to like the look of and McGinley Square also looks so good ~ I'm wondering why it's ok for the Downtown to develop as haphazardly as it does?

I don't know if there could ever be a law mandating that signage maintain good graphic standards. how would you even implement that..

also it's totally subjective

Two Boots. Really??? It's an eyesore at best. Maybe on Bourbon St. in New Orleans it would fit right in. But if you all want "upscale" stuff downtown, Two Boots makes Fussy Friends look like a yacht club in Malibu.


Personal taste aside, your comment proves their sign a success. Do you not realize they serve Louisiana flavor inspired pizza?


Yes I do realize that. However "louisiana inspired pizza" sounds about as as good "Jamaican whitefish salad"


Again, that, like your preference in the facade, is all a matter of personal taste. The franchise is all over NYC and is a hit. Personally I like it but to each his own.

You may not like the colors or style of the Two Boots store front but it's clearly professionally executed. Fussy Friends...not so much.

A sign ordinance will not accomplish anything. One, the existing signs will be grandfathered in. Two, this simply becomes yet another obstacle to new businesses, another way for the city to collect envelops of cash.

If anyone actually wants a new sign, my parents own their own side business making them - mostly vinal letterings. If you want to support their mom and pop opperation, PM me for their contact info.

Was up in McGinley Square a few weeks ago and noticed how nice all of the businesses looked. Returned here to home in the downtown and was struck by the crap, handmade, business signage along Newark Avenue ~ "Fussy Friends" leaps to mind.

I'm surprised that our Historic Distric allows new businesses to open with such haphazard junk as a shingle. I mean, c'mon already.
