On June 30, 2009, I posted this shot of Fantasy World's marquee. About a week earlier, Philip Markoff, the so-called "Craiglist Killer," had pleaded not guilty to murdering a women in Massachusetts he had arranged to meet after responding to her ad in Craigslist's erotic services category. The Markoff story and the related controversy about whether Craigslist, the free online classified ad web site, should allow people to advertise prostitution was very much in the news.
Seems like Fantasy World was not so subtly signaling what was for sale inside. That brazenness, especially given it's proximity to the police substation--about a block and a half away--struck me at the time.
