Cougar Town?

I'm surprised no one has made a stink about this faux real estate advertisement for Cougar Town(apparently it's a show on ABC), so let me be the first.

Dear Sirs:

You have not only offended my aesthetic sensibilities, but also section 32-60 of The New York City Department of City Planning's Zoning Resolution (ZR).

This is an "advertising sign" as defined by ZR 12-10 and such signs can only be located in commercial zoning districts C6-5, C6-7, C7 and C8. Not only was this picture taken in a residential district, but you'd be hard pressed to find any of the aforementioned zoning districts anywhere in Greenpoint or Willliamsburg.

The offending signs are everywhere and starting to grate; I demand satisfaction.
