This is a good example of an illegal advertisement having a permit but clearly not complying with the specifics. The permit 20 Bond street does have is for a non illuminated advertising sign measuring only 129 square feet. The sign for Style.com above, which has been replaced with a sign for the ABC program Pushing Daisies, is approximately 450 square feet. The complaint number is 1237482.
Interestingly enough this sign was called in by another caller on 06-05-2008 and was accused of having no permit. (complaint#1226822) An inspection team went out and somehow a violation was served the next day for an illegal advertising sign observed with no permit. In the case that the owner of the building might contest the removal of this illegal signage due to the fact that there is a permit, our complaint should help resolve the issue.
