A Sign of Our Times

The Welcome to White Plains sign is positioned at a major gateway into our city, on the railroad trestle greeting all who enter White Plains from Route 119 on to Main Street. A Thirtieth Anniversary gift of White Plains Beautification Foundation to the City of White Plains, the sign is constructed of heavy gauge aluminum with a duranotic finish, matte black graphics and gold anodized lettering. Designed by Grafico, Inc. of Elmsford, it is a montage of custom- illustrated landmarks in our city. To add a note of interest and personalization to the project, the artwork was done by a member of the art department of Grafico Finn O'Hare, a native son of White Plains. The City of White Plains arranged for the installation which was a major feat. The “unveiling” took place on October 17, 1995.
