Scouting around Red Hook today, I noticed this old brick warehouse:


While the building itself is neat, what really caught my attention were all the warning signs:


So in summary: Violators Will Be Prosecuted, possibly by:

And hey, because we can't have too many signs:


I love that that their No Smoking sign is so specific as to include "CARRYING LIGHTED CIGARS PIPES OR CIGARETTES STRICTLY FORBIDDEN." Pipes, for God's sake!! Because you really need to be concerned about all the pipe-smoking riff-raff that prowl around Red Hook.

Seemingly out of place is this friendly little hand-painted OPEN sign hanging on a cute red string.


I gotta be honest, of all the buildings on the block, this is the only one that had me wondering what the hell is going on inside.

Later, a few streets over, I noticed this sign for a prop building company. Read closely...


Catch this?


A free sandwich vs. attack dogs? I think I know where I'm doing business.
