New York Neon
New York Neon is a forthcoming book that will present a documentary homage to old neon signs in New York. The primary motivation for this project is to record the significance of these signs as works of design that characterized New York's 20th century streetscapes. This blog will feature occasional news items related to New York's dwindling number of old neon signs, as well as sundry "cutting room floor" items that won't make it into the book, and other odds and ends. I expect to post roughly two-to-four times per month, but we'll see how it goes! More information on the project can be found at www.nyneon.org.
