Sign indicating the riverwalk in downtown Miami

Guidance system

Friends of a hiker

harsh, subtle, clear as Carlin

signs at street corners

This little un-named “sign” on the streets of downtown Miami indicates that the Miami Baywalk (or riverwalk) is at the end of the street running along the sign. The waves on the sign mark the direction you need to take to reach the river. There’s no other writing or signboard to accompany this structure—you either see it or you don’t.

Of course, even if you miss it, Google Maps does a pretty good job of getting you there. But that’s not the point.
