There is a poster war brewing in New York City.
Laughing Squid has this post about competing borough posters.
For superior Brooklynites, there's Fourth Floor Print Shop's poster, at top.
James Campell Taylor couldn't let that stand, so he created the above Manhattan poster - which digs a bit deeper and, unfortunately, is cheaper, too, at $20 versus $24.
Would you buy the blue Brooklyn poster to show your borough pride (or, alternately, hatred)?
