That Thing. . .


Dear Community Board 6:
We're getting real close to the Trader Joe's opening. Do we really want to welcome thousands of daily visitors to Forest Hills with a huge rusted Car Wash banner painted on a defunct railroad tressle.
Here's an idea - paint over it. Call the next door Queens Alliance of Artists and have them do a Forest Hills-themed mural. I'm sure they'd be thrilled. Have the Chamber of Commerce pay for it.
Have you seen how supportive of the new Trader Joe's Brooklyn's reps have been? I know it's just a supermarket, but it's still a major draw. Don't embarrass us - paint over that ugly, ugly, huge, old rusted sign.
Thanks.
