Culture on the Cheap
Spotted On Meeker Avenue: Tears
When I saw this billboard (which hails from Leonard Street and Meeker Avenue) I smelled a rat. Sure enough, when I got home and looked up the url my suspicions were confirmed. I understand all to well that everyone needs to make a living. But— and this is a big BUT— given the sheer quantity of illegal advertising (foremost among them billboards) I have seen in north Brooklyn over the years I find it a bit difficult to be sympathetic to these people’s plight.
Besides, how many billboards spreading the good news about surgery-free hemorrhoid treatment (replete with a graphic of a prostate gland, no less) does our fair city require? Really?
