Broadway, February 2006
Someone's specialty is painting huge keys. This building, near Eighth Street, shows some particularly good examples, and they're several floors up. (I don't remember how many, but I know I was at maximum zoom. Click the photo if you want to make it bigger.) I guess the painter crawled around on that ledge, probably in the middle of the night. Yikes!
Jake Dobkin from Streetsy has taken several photos of such keys in other locations.
Wonder what the key means? What does it open?
UPDATE: I revisited this building, and it's actually at the corner of Broadway and Great Jones Street, several blocks south of Eighth. The keys are above the fourth floor.
