Drama of the broken string at eastern terminus

As reported here recently, a street sign was dedicated on the Lincoln birthday bicentennial marking the eastern terminus of the Lincoln Highway at Times Square. LHA director Jerry Peppers has been working on getting a permanent marker and was part of the unveiling. Here are some photos from his daughter Amy Peppers that document the unveiling, including the broken string drama.


The sign awaits unveiling with the pull-string secured until it’s ready.


Commissioner of the New York City DOT Janette Sadik-Kahn joins Jerry Peppers to pull off the cover.


But wait! The cover rips and the string pulls off!!


Who you gonna call?


NYC DOT workers to the rescue!




Peppers and Sadik-Kahn pose with Tim Tompkins, President of Times Square Alliance.


And Pepper again shows what he’d really like – a marker, perhaps a concrete post, at the intersection.

    Oh, man! It just doesn’t get more exciting than that. But who is the big guy with red sneakers sitting on top of the sign?
