PROJECT NYC - "Brooklyn" - Sewer Cover Doormat

Sewers of the World by Vernakular is a project that examines the diversity and beauty of the ubiquitous, yet overlooked sewer covers we find all over the world. Vernakular has scoured over 75 cities and 20 different countries (and counting), in search of the most unique and inspiring sewer covers.

This doormat features an image of a sewer cover taken in the Bensonhurst neighborhood in Brooklyn, NY. The Brooklyn sewer cover image has been one of the best selling designs, though it almost never happened. I got a call from a friend who had spotted the elusive Brooklyn sewer cover while jogging. We looked in the vicinity, but spotted no other Brooklyn sewers cover. To date, I have never seen another one in Brooklyn. The imagery on the doormats is stunningly realistic appearing almost three-dimensional. A great conversation piece, it can be used in the bathroom, kitchen, indoor, outdoor, as a wall hanging, or table-top.
