Greenwich Village Neon Tour

It's a date!  Please join us on Thursday, September 21, 2016 for an evening walking tour of Greenwich Village Neon.  The tour is organized by the fine folks at Untapped Cities - tickets are available here.
Casa Oliveira Liquors, 98 Seventh Avenue South, one of the stops on our tour.  

For reasons both various and mysterious, Greenwich Village is home to New York's densest concentration of vintage neon storefront signs.  Winding our way through the neighborhood, we will see some of the oldest neon signs in the city, and study their letterforms and design details to see how the look of New York's storefront signs changed dramatically through the years.  Stops will include venerable neighborhood institutions like Monte's Trattoria, open since 1918, and Bigelow Drugs, in business since 1838.
