There doesn't seem to be anything special about the dilapidated warehouses pictured above, but a New York City sign marks them as a historic district. Oops ... wrong corner.
According to DNAinfo.com, the city made a mistake when replacing old street signs in the Brooklyn neighborhood of Greenpoint. Instead of marking the Eberhard-Faber Pencil Factory District, which consists of former pencil and stationery factories dating back to the 1860s (one is pictured at left), the sign instead leads you to believe that the dilapidated warehouses on the next block are somehow a landmark.
"It needs to be changed," local resident Molly Fitzsimons told DNAinfo. "As a homeowner, it matters."
A spokesman for the Department of Transportation said they will inspect the area and "make any adjustments as necessary."
Of course, we've seen much funnier signs in our time. Click through the gallery below to see what we mean.
