I was excited when I saw the sign in the second-floor window of the gray, squat, hideous building across the street announcing the impending opening of a new music conservatory. Oh, good, I thought. That should add a little culture to this corner. So what did the music people do? They added a huge scrolling LED sign, displaying various wipe effects and phrases like “1 ON 1 PRIVATE LESSONS” and “FOR ALL AGES” in bold, pink capital letters. It’s visible at all hours from any window in my apartment.
The vinyl banner stretching across two windows looks pretty bad, too, but at least it looks fairly temporary.
Is it too much to ask to get some class around here?
