I bought your “Fading Ads of NYC” book last week and it’s awesome. Some of those pictures are incredible! Keep up the good work. With the city changing so rapidly, a lot of this rich history is being lost and it’s excellent to have someone preserving it while it’s still possible to do so. 

Like yourself, I also have an interest in fading ads and while on my way back from lunch today I passed by this ad on the side of a building on 37th St, between Broadway and 6th Ave. They just knocked down a building next to the one where this ad was painted so it may have been covered for years; I have never seen it there previously. The National Safety Bank & Trust Company of New York opened in 1928 and stopped printing money in 1935. – Bart A. Carlucci
