Leaving Brooklyn? 'Fugheddaboudit!'

NEW YORK - Highway signs will soon encourage drivers on their way out of the Brooklyn borough to "fugheddaboudit."

Borough President Marty Markowitz created the signs as "another great example of the Brooklyn attitude" that would give people one last chance to "turn their cars around and stay in the promised land."

"Once you enter Brooklyn, there's no good reason why you should ever leave," Markowitz said.

The 5-foot-by-8-foot signs read "Leaving Brooklyn, Fugheddaboudit," and will be installed by the end of the week at exit points on the Gowanus Expressway, the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway and the Belt Parkway.

Markowitz created signs last year to welcome motorists to the borough, with phrases like, "Where New York City Begins!" and "Not Just A Borough, An Experience."
What a schmuck...
And this is when the city supposedly has no money and finds it necessary to fine people for the silliest crap...
