Graphic designer Jason Shelowitz isn’t going to take this sitting down.
Tired of seeing people clipping their nails on the subway, and of the many various assaults on the senses and sensibilities of New Yorkers as we make our way through this city of more than 8 million people, he is taking his plea for etiquette to the streets.
Armed with faux street signs that make a case for pulling up one’s pants, for example, he’s trying to educate people on the finer points of getting along. The signs resemble the white, red and black signs we all recognize affixed to various poles around the city.
“It’s a matter of saying what everyone’s thinking,” he said.
