100 Avenue A Still Getting New Copy

This is an illegal NPA City Outdoor street level wildposting site located at 100 Avenue A in NYC. It is the same location where two participants in the NYSAT project were arrested for whitewashing this illegal advertisement, (more to come on this matter later this month) and has been deemed illegal by the DOB sign enforcement unit. Not only this, but the property has a partial stop work order placed on it because of this illegal advertisement. This means there is an order from the city to stop the illegal outdoor advertising at this location until the issue can be resolved legally, and yet here is brand new copy posted on 6-29-09 for the the movie "The Orphan". I have called this location in yet again to find out why NPA is not listening to the city, and in hopes of them recieving another fine for abusing our public environment and flouting NYC law so blatantly.

Funny how the cash strapped city wont pick up the fine. We hear the DOB is understaffed, but its easy to imagine a fining system at least as fun and easy as [my] credit cards/phone bills. Charges, fees, & penalties are sent regularly to my address. And I'm one of millions. The city could set up their billing with [the seven most delinquent] companies, and a high school intern could staff it. Or one of these state employees being laid off in California; with an iPhone at the park, between Frisbee sessions.
