The birds are cute and you can see them when you're on the floor.

Whenever I see pictures of the building with the old PanAm logo, it marks it in a past place and time.

However, my uninformed guess is that cost is the primary driver. It can't be cheap to remove something that big so high up.

and the reason they arent ever taking down that sign is because its incredibly recognizable, regardless of birds. csi: ny, any areal photo of NYC, even the mall by my city has a clothing store, NYC or something for women; their entire picture is nyc backdrop.. with a huge 'met life' building sitting there. that sign is priceless; hence it not coming down. nothing to do with some old pigeons, thats for sure.

Met has space in that building; its the 'new' building for most of the long island city and park ave folks.

In discussing the MetLife Bldg sign over Grand Central, he felt they'd never take that thing down, regardless of whatever CI change was made, because of the costs and process involved. Apparently over time, these things become nests to various bird families and once that happens, you enter an entirely new bureaucratic realm. I'd be surprised to see it change.
