ABCs of NYC -- A

Got this idea from reading DearBaby and the idea of a collage for a baby name using images from around your home.
I’m not pregnant, as much as I’d like to be, and I don’t have baby names picked out. Since we’re leaving NYC I thought I would start collecting letters for a future baby name collage.
My goal is to get a couple complete sets of the alphabet from images of letters around the city. It’s surprising just how much text surrounds us — in the form of advertisements, building plaques, road signs, subway cars, etc.
Here’s my first “A” — from the Astor Place subway, which I take to get to church uptown.

More to follow and I'll try to keep it in alphabetical order. I took a LOT more pictures on Sunday -- walked about 30 blocks after donating platelets on the East Side. I'll repeat this project in Baton Rouge ... and maybe even see if I can get a set of letters in Indiahoma?!

I love the "A." I watched part of a Criminal Minds tonight that took place in NYC. The first murder was n the subway and I noticed the letter. I think this will be a fun project. Not sure you could get many letters in Indiahoma. The NY ones will be cool-i-o though.
