The true character of a neighborhood and its residents is best represented through its handmade dog poop signs. In overly sensitive Cobble Hill, the topic is one of legal responsibility. In Williamsburg, the artsy enclave that it is, the message is streamlined and there is an emphases on layout and design. In hardscrabble Red Hook, anger is the order of the day. The latest entry to the list comes from Welcome to Murraytown, and it proves the sudden affluence of Murray Hill, brought on by the neighborhood's many new luxury condo buildings. Out go the recent college grads who made the area one big frat house, and in come those who plant tropical wooded grass. It's so textbook!
