That's One Solution

The Raccuglia Funeral Home on Court Street, Carroll Gardens, has been encumbered by a bit of scaffolding for the past couple months. Not sure what the problem with the building is exactly, but the owners have apparently been concerned that the name of their business was so obscured it might hurt traffic (if traffic is the right term for the kind of business Raccuglia does). And so they extracted the sign from its longtime resting place and affixed it to the scaffolding. The effect is singularly odd, particularly since the other part of the sign, saying "Funeral Home" remains behind. It's like you're wearing 3-D glasses.
