MTA Misspells “Bleecker Street” in New Ad Campaign
Today in “things the MTA should know but doesn’t because they’re too cash-strapped to care.” Boogie reader @michpils discovered this commissioned subway advertisement on an L train which blatantly misspells Bleecker Street. But these egregious errors are system-wide.

Gothamist reached out to MTA spokesman Aaron Donovan for comment, and was told, “We are aware of the error and we’re removing the incorrectly spelled signs.” Where are the copywriters? What gives?
Anyway, this ad campaign is meant to promote the new subway super-station at Broadway-Lafayette, which will finally allow straphangers to transfer seamlessly between the 6 and BDFM trains. Yup, the Houston headaches over there are almost over.
