Talk about 'ghost' signage!

Have you looked at the claims on this "office space for lease" sign that recently went up at 92 St. Mark's Place just east of First Avenue?

• "Real see-thru windows!"

• "Dry!"

• "Real walls!"

• "Three doors!!" (Why does this get two exclamation points?)

And the best:

• "No ghosts!"

So there's likely no chance that bodies will come bursting up in this space, FYI.

Outside Cooper Union, the NYPD warns about death from above

Heh. "Authorized Drone Strike Zone." But just 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., though that includes Sunday, per the sign.

More about the signs via The New Yorker here (subscription required) ... and CNN.

Spotted by EV Grieve reader Blaine this morning.
