Project Neon!’s Quest for the Best Neon Signs

When you’re driving at night on a long trip, there’s nothing more comforting than a neon sign illuminating the landscape. Nowadays you can travel hundreds of miles and see the same corporate institutions represented over and over, but there are still pockets of fabulous luminous signage.

Project Neon! is a new blog that profiles neon signs all over New York City. There are great pictures and stories about the signs that evoke another era of Americana.

From the site’s about page:

Follow a girl as she follows the glow in search of New York’s best neon signs. Every week I’ll visit another of New York City’s neon-clad establishments and post a photo & story, and tell you more about why I’m traipsing around this metropolis in the cold & dark to visit pharmacies, shoe repair stores, and bars with good neon signs to buy cough syrup, get my shoes repaired or just have a drink.

Definitely worth a browse for history and visual art buffs alike.
