Frank Jump leads a guided tour of Greenpoint, New York
Frank Jump led this tour last week to raise awareness of the ‘fading ads’ in this part of New York. I was a bit slow off the mark to preview it but fortunately Jeremiah at Fading New York did just that and used the opportunity to ask Frank a few questions about his passion for the hand painted advertising of old.
More photos of the signs covered, and of the tour in full swing, over on this blog post which also links to this google map for those who are interested in retrospectively tracing their steps. The tour doubled as an opportunity to showcase Frank’s excellent book, which I reviewed here late last year.
