Immense Illegal Billboard Toples Onto the BQE
Only because no one got hurt can I say that I love this. Many of the billboards along the BQE have sat blank for the past few years in what I can only assume is a state of legal limbo as OAC's fight the city in an effort to hold onto a cash cow of illegal signage along the BQE. While it appears the sign did have copy on one side, a source who lives only a block from this sign tells me that one side has been blank for at least two years now. This recent debacle should insure that all of the offending signs along the BQE come down regardless of the state of any legal negotiations. Only time will tell.Take a look at the size of the column that held up this monstrosity.
