Before the NYC and other municipalities conformed their street signs to the national (white-on-green) standard, each borough had its own color scheme. The Bronx had white-on-blue. Virtually all of them have been replaced by now, so I was quite excited to see this Vista Place & Vaccarella Blvd. sign in the old colors. Unfortunately, it is just over the city line, on the Mount Vernon side. Apparently, Mount Vernon still uses blue-on-white, so the Vista Place sign is not an odd survivor of old Bronx borough signage.
On the east and south side of the MTAs large 239th Street subway yard, the 1997 Rand McNally NYC map shows Bissell Street. Now, it has been de-mapped and turned into community gardens.
