Market Friday - Signs of the times

This is a post for Market Friday hosted by @dswigle, if you haven't followed her yet you should she is one of the kindest and most supportive people here on Steemit, a comment from her is like a ray of sunshine on your page.

For this weeks post I was wondering what I could share and then it came to me and is based on some comments we made with each other on one post where we talked about things being Signs of the times, and then it came to me, and I looked for signs of shops which are little markets :)

This is a sign outside the Sandwicherie shop on 42nd Street, I walk past it often and maybe once a week or fortnight I pop in there to get my breakfast before heading to the office, they do a nice English Muffin with Egg and bacon, Ham or sausage, and I get a freshly squeezed Orange Juice to go with it.

This is the Window of a Eye Glass place, the neon glasses caught my eye from across the street on a dark and cloudy morning, I went for selective color for just the glasses for this edit since they are what caught my eye.

Subway has shops all over the city, and a small fact is that Subway Headquarters is actually her ein Milford CT where I live.
Speaking about a lot of subway shops in Manhattan, I am not sure what the numbers are now but back in 2010 there were more Subway shops than Subway Stations in NYC - 171 Manhattan Subway shops versus 147 subway stations

And another Neon Sign on a Mexican Restaurant on 2nd Ave, I had not noticed it till I edited this photo but they also seem have some cool lighting in the restaurant.

Back on 42nd Street near Grand Central, with there name Sign above the entrance, it is a clothing store, which I have never been in, I seldom do shopping in NYC, mainly because its easier to buy clothes and things in Milford so I can load it in the car and not have to carry it home on the train.

unless stated otherwise all photos used in my posts are taken and owned by myself, if you wish to use any of my images please contact me.

So many signs. I love the old glasses @tattoodjay that is such an old sign style. It's been around since well before neon was a thing, so it's cool to see it rimmed in neon.

Thanks and yes I thought adding the neon gave a new feel to a classic sign

She IS a ray of sunshine! Love your vibrant take on #marketfriday, too! Have a great weekend!

She sure is without a doubt
I was trying to think of something a little different for this week

You to have a good weekend

The "eyes without a face" remind me of the eyes of Doctor T.J. Eckleburg in The Great Gatsby. Cool!

Ohh yes I see what you mean I had not thought of that

thanks for the shots of the signs.. NY has everything neon.
have a great day my friend.

I/thought it was something different to do for a market Friday post and now I am thinking of what to do next week

Okay now this is a pretty cool Market Friday! I would have never thought of doing the signs but, it really is quick cool and I love the selection that you got. There's not as many neon signs as there used to be, is we are trying to be a little more environmentally friendly, but she just have to love the way they look! Your thumbnail or sandwich shop really reminds me of an old-timey Eatery. And I really really like the visual image of the eyeglass place. Exceedingly cool the way did they have the eyeballs peering through the glasses.

Subway really start off quite small in Connecticut and blazed a real sandwich Trail over the years. I have no doubt that they have more subways to eat it then they do have subways to jump on and go. You have blazed a new trail with the signage and I thank you for doing that. I always appreciate all the time and effort you spend wandering around together photos for the various challenges, including mine. Thank you for that!
#MarketFriday loves you!
Upped and steemed


Thanks you know me always trying to think out of the box, or is it I try to avoid ever getting into a box and conforming LOL

Speaking of Subway I got some shots of the back of their HQ building yesterday while walking around the Mondo Ponds trails which they back into and support

Have a great week ahead

Thanks @dswigle and @tipu I appreciate the support

I love all of your brightly lit signs.

I have never heard (or seen) the word "sandwicherie"..... but I really like it.

Thanks and I think this is the first time I have seen that word also ;)

Neon signs are so cool and all so unique. Those glasses really do stand out and make a big statement.

I Mist be on the lookout for more Neon Signs in the city I do love seeing them but do not often take photos of them
