BROOKLYN - The Eagle Clothes sign which sits on top of a U-Haul-owned building was torn down today.

The sign, located at the corner of 3rd Avenue and 6th Street, was taken down because the U-Haul company is adding two floors to its building.

Officials say the sign had to come down in order to adhere to city height limits.

Eagle Clothes opened its factory in 1951 and filed for bankruptcy in 1989.

U-Haul says it will keep pieces of the sign and mix some of them into the expanded part of the building.
