Eyes Wide Shut

Welcome to hell! Come back soon!
Heading east on the BQE this afternoon, just at the point where the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel and the BQE split, I encountered this bilingual billboard. If you can't make it out, the last line reads: "Shield Your Eyes." Fortunately, my friend (thanks Rachel!) was able to translate the Hebrew portion as: "Dear Jew, You Are Entering a Dangerous Place." Don't you hate it when you don't get an ad? Does it mean Manhattan or Cobble Hill? Is it still dangerous if I'm not a Jew? If not, should I still shield my eyes? Is that ever a good idea on the BQE? I guess that's what religion is all about, asking the questions that have no simple answers.
