Cemusa Busted (Again)

The folks at Cemusa need a lesson in our beloved city streets. Their inaccurately-labeled bus shelters are angering denizens left and right. First they mistakenly referred to the Bowery as a “street” [link], and then casually disregarded the last “s” in Frederick Douglass [link]. It’s enough already.

In a further sign of disrespect, the Spanish-based advertising company also mis-spelled DELANCEY at the Bowery & Delancey bus stop. Yes, there are two E’s in Delancey. My question is, weren’t there any copy editors on hand?

I walk by this corner daily, and somehow just noticed the error earlier this morning. Weird.
