After nearly four years, I finally found this particular New York City sign. It is labeled as "DEAD END STREET," and it was manufactured sometime in the 1980s. It uses the "DEPT OF TRANSPORTATION" label on the bottom.



N.Y.C.D.O.T. no longer manufactures this one, and newer "DEAD END" signs have been replacing the older ones for over eight years. There are not too many of the original ones still left. They continue to dwindle to this day.

Some recent additions to my collection.


1960s "SNOW EMERGENCY STREET." A once common sign over 30 years ago. Today, the one in use lacks the original message. Instead, the sign reads "SNOW ROUTE," and a picture of a snowflake is below it.




1960s NYC Department of Traffic "STOP" sign. This one I believe came from somewhere in the Bronx.

1st generation 1950s "DO NOT ENTER" sign. With an additional message that reads "ONE WAY" below it.
