One walking by this building at 136 West 28th Street in Manhattan might not notice the exterior Fallout Shelter sign that has not only been painted over but also used to mount not one but two different cameras.
While New York did start to take signs down in late 2017 as they found them “misleading” amid heightened nuclear tensions with North Korea, various visits since have shown that this occurred mainly at schools and not other buildings. Several exterior signs still exist within the burroughs, including this one, that despite needing the wall space they left up and mummified in time.
