    In the final panel, the second sign reads: “Johnny Carson – What’s the best way an aspiring starlet can get into Hollywood? Bette Davis – ‘Take Fountain.’” This refers to Fountain Avenue. The story, which has been circulating since the late 1990s, is probably apocryphal.

    People have no idea how to behave in the city, which is what “polite” originally meant. They will stand still suddenly in doorways, at the foot of escalators, shout into their cellphones on elevators and block sidewalks as shown.

    I’m pretty sure just about anyone with $75,000 can get a sidewalk “star”.
