Mets Caught Stealing Long Island City's Flavor?

New, 13 comments

There we were, combing through WCBS's epic new Citi Field photo gallery (looks ready to go!) when we stumbled across a very familiar site: Long Island City's favorite waterfront advertisement! Or, at least, an imitation of it?we hope. Conspiracy theory: The landmark Pepsi sign was recently dismantled and is currently in the midst of a move to the north, right? So what if the Mets are pulling a bait-and-switch?hijacking the original and swapping in a replica at Gantry Park? Unlikely, yes, but perhaps a Queens civil war can help settle this once and for all.
