The neon signs that light up the New York sky

October 11, 2012

Restaurants, hotels, movie theaters, corner stores—glowing neon colors are still all over the city, giving off that enchanting glow that makes New York nights so warm and magical.

Cinema Village has been showing indie and foreign films on 12th Street and University Place since 1963 and was “built in the shell of a turn of the century fire station,” its website says.

Patsy’s opened in 1944 and has been billed as Frank Sinatra’s favorite restaurant. Or was that one of the other Patsy’s around Manhattan?

This is my favorite neon sign and object: the Desco Vacuum Sales and Service store at 131 West 14th Street. A technicolor beauty.
