In 1977, New York State Department of Economic Development
blanketed the airwaves with a huge promotional campaign to promote tourism
in New York
State. Following in the footsteps of the initial media blitz
teamed with CMG
ed the I love NY logo
and started selling caps, t-shirts and the infamous bumper sticker
adorned with this node's title.
In the fall of 2001, following you-know-what
this campaign has been ressucitated as 'More than ever, ...'
Of course, there's already a node about this but I wanted to document the origin of the bumper sticker, specifically.
If this node's title shows up as I♥NY, or is otherwise broken; refer to ♥ writeup for an explanation.
