The Levi’s Billboard is Busted
The massive Levi’s billboard above the intersection of Lafayette and East Houston is still busted. In fact, the mechanism of gears hasn’t worked for a number of weeks now. Well, it was a good two-month run.

Not too long ago, a crew of workers on one of those specialized billboard cherry-pickers was on hand to assess the situation. Presumably to position each of the cogs properly so that the “we are all workers” slogan would be legible. Although, the recent bouts of heavy rain and wind seem to be wreaking even more havoc. Just ask 290 Mulberry!
