Who's Bloomberg?


























Though Ed Koch may be getting on in years, & technically twenty three years out of office, it's nice to see that in some corners of the city he's still the man. This sign is on a lamppost at Broadway and 37th Street, Astoria, and with Norman Steisel listed as Sanitation Commissioner, it must date from between '79 and '86. Not bad at all. I like the range of stickers adorning it, especially the Croatian hero atop the soda can.   Astoria is rife with Balkan mystery.  
Many thanks to the reader who sent this in.  This is a great find!
