No Spell-Check for Stanton Street “School”
Someone failed their third grade spelling test.
It’s an embarrassing, albeit hysterical blunder here on the Lower East Side. A painted street warning to motorists for being in a school zone was misspelled as “SHCOOL.” As the New York Post reports this morning (but stolen from Lo-Down), the error was spotted on Stanton Street just outside Marta Valle High School, where it resided unchecked for months.
The DOT is passing blame to utilities contractors who tore up the pavement last summer; apparently these workers are responsible for restoring street markings after work is complete.
And on a related note, perhaps the Post should double-check their own spelling of our city streets, no? It’s STANTON, not STATION!
