Movable Type Authority

Two years ago I saw the only episode of HBO's Bored to Death I have ever seen and this has bugged me since that day:

If you're from NYC and take the train even semi-regularly, that should stand out like a sore thumb. The typeface is completely wrong and the terminal station on the left is in Queens while the train is going, ostensibly, to Brooklyn (plus the train reflection is all weird and swoopy). This is how it is supposed to -- and did -- look earlier in the episode):

My guess? They had footage from inside of the train station and either cut corners or simply forgot to take footage from the other side and decided to 'shop it, or whatever the video-editing equivalent is.

Little did they know that I would blow the lid right off their little secret two years after it had any relevance to anyone.
