How not to publish a street sign (part 1?)

What's next, calling our town New York Sity?

A spelling-challenged city worker changed the name of SoHo's Mercer St. to Merser St.

A street sign put up last week on the northwest corner of W. Houston St. carried the erroneous letter, drawing laughs from passersby.


Mersy me! City can't spell Mercer St.

Somebody has some s'plainin to do up at Rikers and DOH.
That’s what happens when 2/3 the prison population and in our "sanctuary city’s' are interloper's from 3rd world country’s.

I remember seeing a couple of years ago in Waldheim-Flushing a street sign for Delaware Avenue as Delawere Avenue or something messed up like that.
