'For sale' sign snaps, prompts FDNY visit

EV Grieve reader Alex R. passes along these photos from East Ninth Street between First Avenue and Second Avenue ... "A (long time) for-sale sign finally snapped while I walked by today. The wind was sending it swinging wildly. Heavy sheet metal — could have seriously hurt someone if it fell!"

"FDNY showed up and promptly took it down before the other hook could snap. Thanks guys!"

This is the kind of lazy business for which the FDNY should be sending bills - not car accidents.

That wind was something today. Knocked me back a couple feet while I watched other people on the street standing still, like time was frozen for a minute until they were able to find the ground and slowly move again.
