From NYC DOT, Behind the Signs: A Look at the DOT Sign Shop:

There are more than two million signs in New York City. Ever wonder where they come from? Many are made by DOT’s in-house sign shop based in Maspeth, Queens. This crew of 22 employees fabricate 9,000-12,000 signs a month, ranging from large highway signs down to Alternate Side Parking signs. Learn more about this crucial aspect of keeping NYC moving.

We love how things are made.
