H&M Flatiron Building Advert Violates Codes

It looks as if the monstrosity that is the H&M ad on the side (well on the scaffolding) of the Flatiron Building is illegally there.

The Department of Buildings issued nine violations for the illegal advertising banner recently placed on the apex of the historic Flatiron Building at Madison Square today. The violations included, sign on surface area is too large, installing advertising sign without a permit, and sign creates hazardous wind load.

Not to mention that one shouldn’t ever fuck with the Flatiron building. People, I’m calling for a boycott of H&M. You know you can do it.
