Before 1985, every borough had their own distinctive street signs. Brooklyn used
black and white lettering, the Bronx used blue with white lettering, and Staten Island used gold with black lettering(Manhattan used the same). Today, all the street signs are green with white lettering, but traces of NYC's past are still around, like this old street sign for Bennington St., one of the smallest blocks, if not the smallest on the Island; it is located between Robinson Ave. and Armstrong Ave. This classic sign was spotted on the Robinson Ave. side.
