"New York"/"New York City" signs in Ohio

Signs for Interstate 80 Eastbound along its free section in Ohio between the Ohio Turnpike and the Ohio/Pennsylvania state line identify New York City as the next major destination, skipping over two states' worth of small towns.

I-80 Westbound at Ohio 11/I-680. There is no New York signage (photo is facing the wrong direction), but it's in the same interchange. Note that there is no access to I-680 (I-680 cannot access I-80 EB/Ohio 11 NB, either).

Although blurry, the destination of "New York City" is visible on the overhead sign. Note that Ohio 11 is identified only on a separate ground-level sign. Salt Springs Road and Meridian Road in tandem were used as access between I-80 and I-680 to compensate for missing ramps at the I-80/I-680/Ohio 11 interchange until the remainder of Ohio 711 was built.
