haiku street signs in new york city

the ‘curbside haiku’ initiative brings bright graphic signs and playful haikus to the streets of new york city

a collaboration between the new york city department of transportation with safe streets fund and american artist john morse, ‘curbside haiku‘ brings bright graphics and playful poetry to the street signs of new york, in an initiative designed to promote road safety.

144 signs covering 12 different designs have been placed in areas near cultural centers and schools, where a high percentage of accidents take place. in some locations, the signs feature only graphics, with the haikus embedded in a QR code. in others, signs are hung in pairs featuring both image and text.

  • haiku rocks, so does this song about being wooed by haiku (http://buttonfly.bandcamp.com/track/haiku)…I know I was wooed by the humor and beauty of these signs — esp after a day of cycling in sleet and snow and wind in London, ON. These signs made my day!

  • Beautiful posters, but damn those QR codes are an atrocity of society. They’re ruining these posters as well!
