It seems that less than a year after I took this picture of the Eagle Clothes sign, in 2012, it was torn down by U-Haul, which had bought the old Eagle Clothes factory beneath it. In 2013, according to a search I just did, a NY City Council member wrote a letter to U-Haul (based in Arizona) pleading for the sign’s restoration. Another article said that U-Haul had considered keeping the sign and placing it atop the two new stories it planned to add to the building. But that would have raised the sign above the maximum height allowed in the zoning laws. So U-Haul had to choose one or the other: Save Sign or Add Two Floors. Maybe the City would have granted a variance, which might have raised an objection from some group whose view of the river would be obscured, or some other group might have challenged the city’s decision to reject its plea for a variance in a similar case. As Roseanne Roseannadanna used to say, “It’s always something.”

I'm fairly certain that everyone from Brooklyn is required to post a photo of this sign at least once.
