Stop kvetching, go to Dusseldorf!

I realize there are more important things to blog-- mansions toppling, France losing-- but has anyone else found all those bus-shelter ads for vacationing in Dusseldorf, now all over the Upper West Side, a little odd? Who had the brilliant idea that Upper West Siders would be a good target audience for these ads, that Dusseldorf is to be the Fairway shopper's travel destination of choice?

I think this might be the work of the other Philip Roth...

they're all over the city -- not just the uws. i keep studying them trying to figure out whether they're a joke or not.

It's got to be a joke, a promotion for a new movie, something...

I saw one in the South Bronx today. It's a very wide target demographic. It also doesn't seem to be a particularly attractive picture of Dusseldorf.

As a matter of fact, Dusseldorf has a lot of Jews, at least by German standards.
