Inspiring signs placed throughout Sunset Park
Empowering signs have been placed in Sunset Park to spread warmth and bring smiles to members of the community.
The signs read, "You are beautiful" and have been hung on Fifth Avenue by the Sunset Park Business Improvement District.
The signs are also translated into Spanish, Chinese and Arabic.
Passersby tell News 12 that they are excited about the positive messages and enjoy the positive reminder.
"You know, everybody wants to be beautiful. You hear that all the time," says Renee Giordano, the executive director of Sunset Park BID. "So we're just letting people know that they are beautiful and making them understand that they can be proud and beautiful at the same time."
So far, just three signs have been posted, but Giordano hopes that will change.
"I'm hoping for another at least 15 or 20 more, so we will see how it goes," she says. "But even the nicest ideas sometimes take time to catch on."
The Sunset Park Business Improvement District wants people to take photos with the signs and post them on the Sunset Park Facebook page or on Instagram, using the hashtag #sunsetparkpride.
