About Letters Of New York

New York City is a giant display case whose history is documented in every letter we pass. The hand-painted signs and etched words that surround us are part of the city’s unique visual timeline. Even a faded building number can echo the time of its creation.

Letters of New York is dedicated to highlighting the wide range of letter styles this city offers and to chronicling this element of New York’s story. The project is as ongoing as the endless subject matter provided by the city itself. I hope you enjoy the images as much as I enjoy taking them.
