From the Daily News:
It's Manhattan's million-dollar billboard.
That's nearly the amount the city is fining a coop board, billboard company and two installers over a giant sign on a building near Astor Place.
More than 70 violations - totalling $955,000 - have been doled out over the single billboard, which the Buildings Department says violates zoning laws.
The groups slapped with the hefty fines call them shockingly high since signs have been plastered on the structure for more than 70 years.
