After the hassle involved in getting a neighborhood named as an official historic district, things don't really get any easier once a district is decreed: getting those brown historic district street signs is a tough process, too. The non-profit Landmarks Preservation Foundation pays part of the cost, but community groups must raise the rest of the money, and each sign costs $55 to make. The Dumbo and Douglaston Hill historic districts, and the extension to the Greenwich Village district, are still waiting on their signs. [City Room]
