From Sunnyside Post:
Illegal signage is being erected throughout the Sunnyside neighborhood by psychics and auto buyers.
Three signs in the heart of the business district have been nailed to trees/lampposts by a psychic named Christina. The signs read: “Psychic Tarot Card & Palm Readings” and provide a phone number. However, the cellular number provided was not in order; it had been disconnected.
Local resident Jimmy Woods was perturbed by the advertising. “I don’t believe anyone has the right to drive nails in trees.” Furthermore, Woods said, “This is advertising overload…when will people stop.”
The signs are more than 8 feet high – and most likely require a ladder to be erected. The three are located in the following spots: 46thStreet (between Queens Blvd and Greenpoint Ave); 46thStreet (between Greenpoint Ave. and 47thAve.— across from Bank of America); and Greenpoint Ave (between 46th and 47th Streets—next to Rite Aid).
Christina was tracked down because of a billboard that was placed at the entrance to the 46th Street subway stop, which provided a different phone number. She said she had not done anything wrong by putting up the signs. “Everyone else is putting them up.”
