Sunnyside theater marquee falls
From Sunnyside Post:
The iconic Sunnyside Center Cinemas sign was damaged this morning and is likely to be demolished.
The building manager Michael Christopher said that a truck hit the sign while it was traveling along Queens Blvd. However, there was no sign of a truck on the scene and a police officer who was there was doubtful of this account.
Workers from the Department of Buildings were on their way to the theater to determine whether the sign should be destroyed.
A firefighter who evaluated the condition of the sign said it was rotten inside and would most likely have to come down.
