A little more than six months after it popped up on a Glassell Park hillside, the large white letters that spelled out “Glasssellland” were removed this morning by a crew of three men. Drew McKinley, who snapped a photo of the sign-less hillside near Kinney Street, said the men began dismantling the sign at about 7 am. Another resident, Carrie Bryden, was told that the sign was taken down because it lacked permits. “So sad,” she said.
It’s not the first time the Glassellland sign has come and gone. The sign first appeared about a half mile away when it was erected on a hillside near Forest Lawn last month before being removed a few days later. Is this the last stand for Glassellland or will it crop up on a hillside near you?
