How about NO: Nonprofit wants to create “HOLLYWOOD” like sign in Pittsburgh

Don’t count me among those who support a Pittsburgh-area nonprofit’s effort to create a “PITTSBURGH” sign that would mimic the famed “HOLLYWOOD” sign.

WESA has the details.

One option for the sign’s future could be something akin to Hollywood’s iconic hillside sign, according to Scenic Pittsburgh executive director Mike Dawida.

“It does not identify commercial activities, it doesn’t sell beer, it doesn’t sell chipped ham,” Dawida said. “It’s there to just tell everybody, ‘this is a beautiful place and this is where you want to come and see.’”

Imitation and sincere form of flattery, you say? How about cheap imitation? Heck, let’s put a quasi-Statue of Liberty along the river.
