I was in Queens getting my taxes done and the typography was just amazing: some great, some bad, and all of it pretty dated. I suspect the neighborhood is pretty working class, not a lot of new revenue coming in. Good people with mainstream tastes, maybe.
Then I found myself in Park Slope, not in the frou frou part, but the still fairly middle class area near 15th Street. Once again, there was some great work–mostly from a while ago when the neighborhood was up and coming. The more recent stuff was pretty blah or badly designed.
