The WORLD Theater letters were removed in the middle of the night by Tom H. and brought to First Ave., they were used in a downtown holiday decorating contest, which the Ave. lost to Glam Slam (I think).
They eventually disappeared from the Ave. when the storage room was gutted for the bar behind the ladies restroom.
