500-Foot Tall Billboards – Stay Classy, Miami.

Miami is about to get a taste of Times Square, now that the city’s commissioners have given their okay to a plan that would erect a pair of towering electronic signs.Even though the project faced vehement opposition from some residents, the commissioners still voted 4-1 to approve the billboards, which would reach nearly 500 feet into the Miami sky.The reason? Money. The billboards will provide the city with at least $2 million a year in fees.

I wonder how these monstrosities will behave in a hurricane. Having a 500 foot sign fall on you could ruin your whole day.
