Billboard Blown Down; BQE Blocked

According to Notify NYC, a billboard has been blown down near the Metropolitan Avenue exit on the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway, blocking traffic on the westbound (i.e. those approaching the Heights from the north and east) lanes of the highway. Emergency crews are on the scene; we’ll keep you posted.

Update: NY1 has a video. Update-update: Gothamist says the billboard was “illegal”; as of this (Saturday) morning, one lane of the BQE was still closed.

    Our driver was very upset! He was just returning from a trip to the Apple Store with our new Apple TV and that terrible billboard nearly struck the top of our Range Rover!

    Thank goodness it didn’t scratch the paint, we have a very good lawyer, you should know!
