Leaving Brooklyn? ‘Fugheddaboudit!’
NEW YORK (AP) _ 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.″
