Here in Chicago, we don't have falling iguanas, but lots of falling ice. Every building in the city posts these signs presumably so they can't be sued if someone is pelted with a huge block of ice.
Here's the problem. How do you watch for falling ice? Do you walk staring straight up into the sky to see if there's something falling from 52 floors up? Impossible because everyone is too busy making sure they don't get splashed with dirty snow by a cabbie, or run into by a European walking on the wrong side of the sidewalk.
