EAST YORK STREET SIGNS sign now

THEY ARE CHANGING THE EAST YORK STREET SIGNS (WITH THE CLASSIC EY SYMBOL ON THE CORNERS) WITH THE NEW "ACORN" STREET SIGNS THROUGHOUT EAST YORK! IF THEY WANT TO DO THAT, THEN PUT THEM UP BUT DO NOT TAKE THE OLD EAST YORK STREET SIGNS DOWN. BEFORE THE AMALGAMATION, EAST YORK WAS CANADAS FIRST AND ONLY BOROUGH! AND NOW THE CITY OF TORONTO WANTS TO TAKE AWAY THE OLD EAST YORK SIGNS OFF COMPLETLY. THIS IS OUR IDENTITY! WE ARE EAST YORK. SIGN THE PETITION, WHOEVER STILL WANTS THE OLD EAST YORK STREET SIGNS UP.























Last night (2006.09.26), I attended the last of four public viewings of proposed new Toronto streetsigns (see Flickr photos). I got there early and chatted with the amiable David Nagler, who urged me to walk over and talk to the designers (from Kramer Design Associates). But Ill just get into an argument! I protested. I later relented and struck up a conversation that, inevitably, turned into an argument.







In the discussion below, Ill use the term white Clearview sign (black text on a white ground) to refer to the new residential streetsigns that Spacers and commenters on their blog seem to hate so much. It is to be distinguished from the blue Clearview signs (white text on blue) that are mounted adjacent to traffic lights at major arterial intersections. The Spacers and commenters hate those too, of course, but that doesnt matter, since they work better than the old ones. No one actually said white Clearview sign; I am using it in these notes for clarity.







Acorn signs are the old cast-metal signs, which some people think always have embossed metal lettering. They certainly have a knob at the top, hence the name acorn.

---------------







Have you noticed the new street signs that are popping up around the city? I noticed some as early as March. The new signs are oversize knock-offs of the classic shape we're used to in (old) Toronto. They have the characteristic white background framed in black with a pointy crown on top, but it is really just one flat piece of a single material..
