This amazing vintage sign is in Hells’ Kitchen in New York - a fire-and-brimstone street preacher founded a mission there in 1945 - he was called “The Bishop of Wall Street” and was well known for his high-volume admonishments at passers by!
The building still houses a resource centre for the homeless, and while they’re taking a far more modern approach to their work these days - this sign is way too much of a beloved neighbourhood icon to take down.
It’s been featured in countless tv shows and movies - and in one very special silk scarf. I spent many hours staring at this sign from one of my favourite west side eateries and it always made me smile. Perhaps it’s a little blasphemous of me, but I took the message in a rather more hopeful light than it was intended, I think.
After all, it was Mae West who said “(when forced to choose) between two evils, I always pick the one I never tried before!”
