This is Kinda Cool - No one else can put their sign on our building!

With this revelation that is was illegal is even more humorous when one remembers that the city helped with the electric bill because the branch wanted to turn the lights off but the airline pilots used them for their approach for landing and complained.

Plus this is not the original sign from the 70s.  If memory serves the sign was updated in the 80s.  The accusation of illegality seems incorrect.

Interesting but I object to the suggestion that the sign was "illegal". I'm certain that if they needed permission (and the brothers knew that to be the case)  they would have sought it.  Plus the first link said they found written documents affirming the request for and approval of the sign...   I'm curious as to whether the developers Lawyers approached the brothers to ask if they had any documentation...

 

Still if it was actually illegal but the city overlooked the fact, we can chalk that up to it being Jehovah's will and he striking the city officials with a 50 year bout of blindness as with the Syrian army and Elisha.

Shortly after the purchase of 97 sands, before the residence was built, there were tenants in the original building that had a exhaust vent full of pigeon nests that had to be cleaned out. Since we were the landlords it was up to building maintenance to fix it. It was about 85F in the morning when we, the paint and scaffold crew, started rigging to clean it. By the time we were ready to start cleaning, dressed in our full ppe, i just happened to look in the direction of the sign and it read 98, which meant it was probably 110 on the roof we were on. 

 

Never was a fan of that time and temp clock after that.
