Upper West Siders Declare War on Peace Sign
Ansonia residents don't want to give peace a chance. Some occupants of the landmarked building — just blocks from the Dakota building home of John Lennon, who wrote "Give Peace a Chance" — and some of their neighbors have declared war on a neon red anti-war sign that shines from a window.
"It's terrible," complained a 10-year resident of the Ansonia who didn't want her name used." It's so unattractive. That person seems to be imposing his decorating taste on the neighborhood. The residents take a lot of pride in the architecture of the building and it detracts from the architecture. It's all you see at night."
