The New York City skyline is one of the most famous in the world.

But in many ways, it is always changing (especially depending on your point of view). It also seems to be dependent on the definition of “famous” or “historic.”

The sign for “Eagle Clothes” could be seen for decades from the subway and the highway in Brooklyn.

The storage company that currently owns the building in Brooklyn along 3rd Avenue is remodeling and has removed the sign.

Reports are the managers hope to incorporate the sign into the new design.

The NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission is in charge of designating places that are historic in nature. Some on-line petitions and neighbors who around various signs have started efforts to include signs on the official lists.
