SIGN REMOVED — The familiar stone “Welcome to Beacon” sign was dismantled recently after sitting for 11 years across from the Metro-North station. The half-acre parcel is being cleared to make way for six townhouses. City Council Member George Mansfield, who helped create the sign, said he expected it would find a new home, although he cautioned, “it may not be the same exact thing.” (Photo by Jeff Simms)
