Sign Language

An easy source of entertainment in New York are signs. From the inexplicably misspelled to the overly detailed to the unnecessarily repetitive, there's always something curious to be seen for those who look up.

Today's examples are signs from chicken restaurants. If you were opening a restaurant in Brooklyn and were planning to offer chicken, clams, shrimps, fish, hamburgers and much more, would you name it "Only Chicken"? Someone in Brooklyn decided to do so. Kelley passes this place on her way to and from work.

Solo Pollo is located on Court Street at Hamilton Avenue in Brooklyn.

My second chicken restaurant is located in Hells Kitchen, a few blocks from where Kelley works. Pluck U. is one of the more creatively named places to get chicken wings.

Pluck U. is located on Tenth Avenue, between 47th & 48th Streets in Manhattan.

Pluck U is also one of the cheapest and dirtiest places to get chicken wings. But I love it.

How come both these places looked like they are boarded up and closed?

I took those pictures on Saturday morning, before the restaurants were open. But when they are open, they don't look that much more inviting.
