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.
