Purple Tombstone in Front of LICH Not a Halloween Prank

 When we saw this purple tombstone mourning the neighborhood of Cobble Hill this morning in front of Long Island College Hospital (LICH) in Brooklyn, we thought it was a clever Halloween prank pulled by supporters of the now-shuttered hospital.

It appeared as if community members were making the point that closing the hospital and selling it for condos would lead to a very bad outcome for Cobble Hill.

Later we saw that NYU had pulled off the black plastic covering their logo. It wasn't a prank after all!

It still looks like a purple tombstone, however -- 

and it seems that other people thought the same thing.
