A come on Crappy. Post the front cover of the Place in History booklet on Long Island City that is all the rage of Queens West hipsters - you know, the one that shows the community as a bombed out pile of rubble

Now THATS how you promote a community with a future.

though I despise ads this Pepsi Cola one is really awesome, putting the neon Georgia peach one, down below, to shame.

"Pepsi Cola hits the spot...
2 big glasses full of snot.

Tastes like piss or Iodine....
oh my God it's Turpentine" !

A little ditty that probably
predates the 1940s.

The Pepsi-Cola sign merits landmark status. The developers said they'll preserve it (since it is a selling point), but I don't trust them.

Of course Rockrose Developers
will save the Pepsi sign.

It faces Manhattan doesn't it?

In Queens we get to read it backwards!

Of course they will preserve it - you can see it from Manhattan, therefor its important. You don't have to ignore the locals in THIS one.

Wow....are you guys listening to yourselves? "Keep the Sign...its a landmark!!!!" they decide to keep the sign.... and you all complain.."Well of course they will, it faces Manhattan..." If they decided to tear it down you would all be here complaining about how they crap all over queens and get rid of everything that is historic. I personally love that sign and am glad it wont be torn down, but you wont hear me complaining about how terrible the developers are for keeping it there so the Manhattanites can view it. In case you didnt realize, you can see the sign on the bridge coming into queens. Does no one think that is something nice to see?

The point is that it is saved not because (heaven forbid) the community wanted to save it, but because a developer wanted to.

If he wanted to get rid of it, it would be gone. The opinion of the community be dammned.

We are tired of living on a plantation in Queens, where our every action and our every value is dictated by someone else.

It is really getting tired.
