This is the sign that marks the Brooklyn landfall of the Buckeye pipeline which the DOJ have got so worried about. Lord Patel's Jihadist surveillance team took this some time ago.

"The fuel supply for these operations (1,000 flights daily, approximately half of which are international flights) are linked primarily to the Buckeye Pipeline, which distributes fuel and other petroleum products to various sites in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Staten Island, Brooklyn, and Queens, New York, among others."
The pipeline owners have a website that explains their security / maintenance effort
They helpfully explain "No work should be conducted along a Buckeye pipeline without prior approval. This is to ensure the safety of the people working around the pipeline as well as the safety of everyone else in the area."
They also have a helpful "Call before you dig" page that explains how contractors should contact them
"If you or someone you know is going to conduct any type of excavation work, including demolition, blasting, mining, digging with power equipment, hand digging, or any other type of work that will disturb the ground, you need to contact the One Call System that covers that area. "You see they got those bombers well covered - soon as they wanted to bomb those lines they needed to "Call before they Dig".

"It is vitally important that you know the specifications of Right-of-Way restrictions before planning any projects or selling any property along pipelines owned and/or operated by Buckeye. It is also important that our line markers not be removed from our Right-of-Way, since they mark the approximate location of our pipelines and let people know that a pipeline is in the vicinity. Removal of these line markers is a violation of Federal law."
Pretty certain those guys would send you plans for the lines if you are looking to buy a house in the neighbourhood, no problems.

Kurt Nimmo at Another Day in the Empire has a detailed breakdown ," JFK 4 : Connecting Propaganda Dots from Jamaat al Mulimeen to Hugo Chavez " and reminds us of the BBC report on (amongst many others)17th Februaru 2003 of Hasil Mohammed Rahaham-Alan, 37, from Venezuela, appearing at Bow Street Magistrates' Court after Customs officials stopped him after he flew in to the UK from the Venezuelan capital, Caracas, on a British Airways jetcarrying a live grenade in his baggage.
Well the odd thing is that any amount of Googling and searching fails to turn up any further reference to the grenade carrying Venezuelan passport holding passenger....Except this
from Airline News weeks later ..." The 39-year-old, a devout Muslim, reportedly had no links to militant groups and his grenade had been disarmed. At first he was charged under anti-terrorist laws but the prosecution said it now accepted that he had acted as a result of depression caused by personal problems. Sentencing has been adjourned until 20 May, reported Reuters."
