It's a funny quote for sure, but I don't really see the bays on this particular building as being all that bad. There are definitely a lot of ugly rectangular bays that have been put up in recent years though.
I'm more excited by this particular quote:
Pearl’s attorney, William Martin, Esq., Fox Rothschild LLP, noted that the developer is currently in litigation to dissolve the “arrangement” that includes the billboard in the parcel.
I'd love it if they were able to get that particular billboard down. That thing is an eyesore.
