‘Oy Vey’ Such a Sign
A traffic sign with the words, "Leaving Brooklyn Oy Vey!" went up on the Williamsburg Bridge from Brooklyn into Manhattan. The city's Department of Transportation approved the sign earlier this month, after rejecting an earlier request from Borough President Marty Markowitz.
"The beauty is, every ethnic group knows it," Markowitz said of the expression.
