I love the new blue Newark Airport signs.

I am not a fan of them ditching the classic 4 color plane egg logo that has defined this airport for my entire life.

You (on one side) and roadman and I (on the other) will have to agree to disagree.

What I don't get, though, is the use of of the egg logo and "Newark Airport" on a brown background on signs where the rest of the sign is green.  I mean, EWR isn't a park, but is it that much of a tourist attraction?

Traditionally the airport used all white on brown signage. When the PA did their last major sign replacement in the early aughts (the Frutiger signage), they moved to a more standard white on green with the yellow and white panels (since yellow was the airport wayfinding system's indication of "this way to airside things"). Signs for the airport being on brown backgrounds was just a vestigial leftover of that original signage at that point.

Thatís why Exit 13A on the Turnpike uses brown border rule on the latest guides. Traditionally the Turnpike used white on green Newark Airport.

Very lame Exit 21 overhead guide.  No distance reference.

Yeah, while other new signs here are odd, this one is just an error.

Route 440 for sure is now odd with all the information overload coming from Staten Island on the gantry near Route 35.
