Thanks to the efforts of one Marty Markowitz, when denizens of New York's Brooklyn Borough cross the Williamsburg Bridge into Manhattan, they will see a sign over their head that reads, "Leaving Brooklyn, Oy Vey!" This sign is but one of several that drivers see on the bridge and in other locations around Brooklyn. Some say such things as "Not just a borough, an experience," "You name it... we got it," and "Believe the hype."
I don't know why this was in the news, other than the fact that the proposal was approved this year while it was disapproved in January of 2004. Still, it's neat that a borough would go to the trouble to say "sorry to see you go."
