A dad and his daughters, loving life in New York City

Friday, September 28


Please help.

UPDATE: Helped (see comments). Thanks Susan! Though Time Out NY totally cheated, as the "A" in question seems to be from a chain that's not even in Manhattan.

Above is a section of the cover of last week's Time Out New York. My typography-savvy daughters and I pretty quickly named which logo each letter came from... except for that second "A".

It's totally driving us nuts. It's got to be something really obvious, but we've spent a week now thinking and arguing and scoping signage all over town, and have come up empty.

Please release us from our torment, and, if you know, let us know, in the comments.

Thank you very VERY much.

Bo got the first N: it's from Disney, and the only letter in the logo without all those curlicue flourishes.

Thanks heels, but that's the "T" from Citibank, with the rainbow/ umbrella/ frown symbol.

Totally appreciate the help, though.

I think the second A is from the GAP logo.

Oh. I guess I'm not being clear. I mean the second "A" in "Manhattan," not in the whole headline.

Yes, the first A in Manhattan is from the Gap.

Thanks Nicole.

I'm pretty sure it's IKEA -- maybe it would be easier to recognize on a mustard background...

That's TOTALLY it, Susan! Yes, the color seems a bit off, but I looked at a bunch of different IKEA logos on different sites and, yes, absolutely, you are correct right.

Such a relief not to have to think about THAT anymore...
