Help “Project Neon” Capture City’s Neon Signs
Consider Project Neon a museum for the dying breed of commercial advertisement. Intrepid cataloger Kirsten Hively spent last winter traipsing around town to capture neons before all disappear in favor of LCD screens and boring backlit boards. Her day-to-day progress is ordinarily presented on the eponymous blog, but the ultimate goal was always this mobile guidebook of sorts.
The free iPhone app will map the location of New York’s 100 best neon signs alongside photos and descriptions. As of today, Hively has collected just over half the initial goal of $5,000; only six days left to donate!
What are some of your favorite neighborhood neons?
