Iconic Long-Time NYC Subway Advertiser Dr. Zizmor Retires and Pulls All Ads

Dr. Jonathan Zizmor, now 70 years old, has ran subway ads since the early 1980s but just pulled all of them and closed up shop.

“The Zizmors love to travel and have many social interests, hobbies, and friends,” said the couple’s realtor, Sandra Waibel. “At the end of the day, they are just like the rest of us.”

The MTA is expected to lose about half of their advertising budget. Ok… not really, but Dr. Zizmor did have a ton of old-school ads that will probably be replaced by corporate giants like Seamless or Airbnb.
