Highways (but not signs) in movies, TV, anime, etc.
« on: December 24, 2021, 12:26:42 AM »

In The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, S1E4 ("The Disappointment of the Dionne Quintuplets"), Miriam encounters a protest in Washington Square Park led by Jane Jacobs. They're protesting the roads and expressways pushed by Robert Moses (called out by name). There was a proposed extension of 5th Avenue that would have bisected the park.

In the show, there was a poster based on the right side of the diagram here: https://ephemeralnewyork.wordpress.com/2014/04/12/the-1950s-plan-for-a-washington-square-highway/



No sign, though, so it didn't belong in the other thread.

While I'm thinking about it, here are the remains of the freeway from The Matrix: Reloaded (2003), constructed almost from scratch:
