The NYC Neon ABCs
(Available on Kickstarter until 11pm on Monday May 30th for a $65 pledge)
Don’t forget tonight is the birthday & neon meetup at The Subway Inn, 6-9p or so. If you’re in NYC stop by!
This poster (like the Neon 100 poster) identifies the businesses & neighborhoods where the signs pictured are found. Can you spot the letter from the Subway Inn?

Did you know there is only one week left in the Project Neon Kickstarter campaign? It’s true! After next Monday (Memorial Day!), I won’t harass you for money any more, and you also won’t have the chance to acquire the beautiful neon posters, limited edition prints, and other great rewards over on Kickstarter. A mere $10 will get you a cool Project Neon membership card, and if you’re feeling flush you can get a three hour neon photo tour for up to 10 people for $500. Go sign up! I’ll wait!
OK, welcome back. As you may have seen over on Flickr, there’s a meetup at the Subway Inn this Thursday May 26th. You should come:
First Annual New York Neon Appreciation Meetup,
Project Neon Kickstarter rally, and
Thursday May 26th, 2011
6p - 9p or so
Yes, there is still scaffolding in front of this venerable New York bar, but that doesn’t mean we can’t appreciate its fantastic facade anyway. Let’s raise a glass to New York’s great neon signs, to the start of summer, and to the venerable, decimally-divisible age I will officially attain on Memorial Day.
I will have a few small neon-related give-aways for those who show up early. See you there!
PS: No presents—just pledges!
