After more than 35 years in Long Island City, LaGuardia Community College is slated to finally receive signs on its building. Three large metal signs will be bolted to the main building at Thompson Avenue and Van Dam Street, Thompson and 31st Street, and Van Dam and 47th Avenue.
The signs were paid for by a $700,000 Queens Commercial Corridor Project grant procured through Borough President Helen Marshall’s office. Elliot said he hopes the signs should be complete by summer 2009.
The college currently has an enrollment of more than 15,000 students from more than 160 countries.
