A Milwaukee man named Mark Gubin has maintained a “Welcome to Cleveland” sign painted on the roof of his building at 2893 South Delaware Avenue in Milwaukee, Wisconsin since 1978. The sign can be seen by incoming aircraft landing at Milwaukee’s Mitchell International Airport and has been the cause of some confusion from travelers.

As for why Gubin painted “Welcome to Cleveland” on a roof near a Milwaukee airport, he told Jim Stingl of the Journal Sentinel, “It was all tongue-in-cheek, just for fun. Living in the world is not a dress rehearsal. You better have fun with it.”
