NYC Scaffolding Ads
Haven't got the chance to read it just now, but this looks to be a good run-down on the enormous vinyl scaffolding ad banners that have taken over NYC. I'm guessing the gist is: they're illegal, but only to the extent that the advertisers and building owners can be fined. The fines are minimal in respect to the profits being made and so are considered an expense of doing business. And nobody has the authority to make them come down.

Thanks for that excellent article.
This part floored me:
"Several outdoor advertising companies are suing the City over LL31, claiming that the law violates their First Amendment rights."
I guess I shouldn't be surprised...
