I recommend viewing on high quality. I love neon signs, especially when they are old, creative, distinct. Whether simple or over the top, appropriately placed neon lights the New York City night like a movie location. There is something seedy, lonely about the best neon. It is eerily effective very late at night, when most people are tucked in at home, but the longing heart wanders the city in search of something to light the dark places. Here is some of my favorite neon, accompanied by “Matchstick Life”, a song by an old friend.
