End is nigh for Watchtower sign: Iconic placard to come down after $340M sale

The iconic Watchtower sign, a glowing fixture over Brooklyn Heights, will soon disappear from the skyline.

Earlier this month, the Jehovah’s Witnesses filed a permit application seeking to remove the 15-foot-tall letters from the roof of the organization’s now-former headquarters. The request comes nearly a year after developers Kushner Companies, CIM Group and LIVWRK Holdings purchased the building at 25-30 Columbia Heights for $340 million.
