A sign featured in Boardwalk Empire, the HBO series.  The fictional town of Tabor Heights is supposed to be near Toms River, New Jersey, but the set where it is filmed is on Staten Island in historic Richmondtown.  Fans of the show will remember that lots of mayhem takes place here despite the religious nature of the sign.
