Let the work begin: Loft's Candy restoration in progress (Let There Be Neon on Instagram)
LTBN's Jeff Friedman tells us that the tubes will be refreshed (the existing tubes will be re-pumped with gas and fitted with new electrodes), the metal channel letters cleaned, and new transformers installed for a re-lighting to take place sometime in the coming months. Let There Be Neon has previously restored a number of notable favorites among New York's old neon storefront signs, including the Long Island Restaurant in Brooklyn, the Beatrice Inn in Greenwich Village, as well as Gringer's Appliances and Russ & Daughters in the East Village.
For more on the Loft's sign, see previous posts 1 2 & 3 at this blog. Stay tuned for more details on the grand re-lighting as they become available.
