The Difference Between Boston and New York, I Guess.

Posted by: Jon Fine on January 31, 2007

When I saw a version of this image, in blue and green colored lights (and with a strategically placed “censored” sign—image may not be entirely safe for work), on a billboard at night in lower Manhattan, I thought it was about the coolest ad I’d ever seen.

When a bunch of them turn up in random locations in Boston, it practically shuts the city down.

UPDATE 2/1: Link fixed; Gothamist cites media reports that randomly placed LED devices bearing that image also removed from various New York locations.

Jon, the link to the image goes nowhere, at least on my browser. Says something about "local host."
