New York Roads - Madison Ave., NYC

Madison Avenue, Manhattan-Bronx

A few of these backlit street signs have made their way to the general Times Square/Madison Square Garden area of Midtown.

The highlight of Madison Ave. is its eponymous bridge over the Harlem River, here seen looking southeast from the Manhattan side. The tower of the Metro North railroad bridge looms to the south.

More looks at the Metro North crossing, this time from the Bronx side.

Heading west across the two-way truss span into Manhattan. The white sign doesn't seem all that old - but if it's not, then it's wrong, and it's sitting on a frame meant for a larger (and of course older) sign.

John Krakoff provided proof that the white sign I saw isn't all that old. The frame once held the sign you see here, amazingly enough into 2004 when he captured this photo, but gone by 2011 when I went by. One of maybe three 1950s white signs left by that point. Well done, John.
