Sometimes I find myself in Long Island City on early weekend mornings, when there is not much traffic. Last time I was there, I noticed these stencils on the street that say, simply, “LOOK!”

LOOK

I’ve done a little research on the interwebs but haven’t found any information on them. I’d like to think some artist created them, but maybe DOT decided to have a little fun. If you know more, please leave a comment!

UPDATE 3/5/13: Thanks to WHA reader J-La, we now know the answer.
