A Good Sign: Bigelow Pharmacy

This Central Village monument is certainly on everyone's short list of great New York signs. (I assume everyone out there has just such a short list.) It's sheer size sets it apart—proportions befitting the oldest continually operating pharmacy in the nation—as does the sign's striking right angle, the arrow at the bottom (in case you missed the store's location just below) and the fact that its visible from several blocks around, due to its hanging near the particular airy and open intersection of several streets.
