The signs guiding people to Henry Hudson Riverfront Park appeared recently, just in time for Columbus Day weekend. As promised, there are three of them: one at Third and Allen, one at the western terminus of Warren Street, and one at South Front and Ferry streets. Skip Weed is to be congratulated for successfully incorporating elements from the riverfront park signage into a very appealing navigational sign. The only disparaging word that's been heard about them is that they are difficult to read from a moving car. Could that be because they don't have upper- and lowercase letters?
On the topic of signs, the Register-Star reported yesterday that a volunteer committee has taken on the task of assessing the signs that lead to and around Hudson and making recommendations for improvement: "Team looks to improve signage to city." Gossips would like to pass along this tip to the committee: Word has it that the village of Skaneateles in the Finger Lakes has signage that is comprehensive, effective, and aesthetically pleasing. Before all the leaves are off the trees, a field trip to central New York might be in order.
