Welcome to Elmira sign showing signs of wear


ELMIRA, N.Y. (WETM) – The sign that welcomes visitors to the City of Elmira with the faces of the area’s most influential residents is in need of minor repairs.

The most notable damage is tearing on the head of former NBC anchor Brian Williams. The edges of several other former Elmirans such as fashion icon Tommy Hilfiger and astronaut Eileen Collins is also beginning to wear, though not as notable as Williams.

The City Manager’s office is aware of the wear and is looking into who originally built the sign in 2003.
