I'm diverting from my scheduled post (which was to have been Part II of last week's post) in order to plug another NYNeon-type project I learned of recently: a 15 minute documentary film that will look at where the signs are made and how they fit into the identity of the city.
Rosemary's Greenpoint Tavern. (Jen Galatioto)
Jen Galatioto over at thegreenpointers.com blog has launched a kickstarter online fundraiser to see the project through. Their deadline is this coming Sunday (kickstarter requires a project to meet its target in order for it to receive funding). The film would feature an interview with yours truly – obviously, this will be a blockbuster, if they get the funding! Have a look and help them out (before Sunday) if you like what you see and you’ve got a few $$ to spare.
IN OTHER NEON NEWS:
Looks like we're about to lose another one: Home of Cheers Liquors, at 18th and 8th in Chelsea, has apparently lost their lease.
Home Of Cheers. (T. Rinaldi)
They're moving to 9th Ave - will their signs follow?
