Eye on Real Estate: Sign on former Brooklyn Heights Watchtower HQ is going, going, gone

Oh, that fine red glow.

When it's gone, we will miss it so.

A few years back the Brothers decided to save on electrical bills and turned the clock sign off. Many complaints were received by the city and the chamber of commerce. Brooklyn Bridge traffic had become dependent on the clock sign. An agreement was made with the powers that be, to meter the clock separately and the bill picked up by the City or chamber, I can't remember which.

A few years back, a young elder and former bethelite in my congregation told me in a decidedly unkind and tactless manner that they were told during morning worship this story was factually false and to stop repeating it. I apologized, but the way it was handled left a sour taste in my mouth. Obviously, I remember the account rather well.

So, what, really is the story here?
