Appropiate type for Turistical New York City poster
0

Hi, everyone I´m new to this site
I have begun working on a proyect to promote tourism to certain parts of the world : London, Paris, and New York.
To this point I´m happy with the typographical approach we achieved with Paris and London, but I´m not happy with New York.

Can anyone help suggesting typography that would relate to New York city life?

Thanks

Gotham, Manhattan and Broadway come immediately to mind. Or, perhaps, this...

Historically Art Deco. Truth is the city is still made up very much of Art Deco Buildings. I would look at a contemporary twist on an art deco style.

Yes, these options are more interesting and appropiate. Thanks for suggesting!

And there's Milton Glaser's famous logo, looking dated but still used on NY souvenirs.

Graffiti, Taxicab-style rate charts, Subway information (external and on-board), Mets, Yankees, and Giants lettering, there's even a font named "Central Park" (but it's a Brendel clone of something else).
