Project Neon


Architect Kirsten Hively documents neon signs in New York City. She photographs the city's best working signs and tells  us a little about the establishments behind the neon. She explains why she haunts the dark streets of New York searching out iconic glowing tubes:
I have been told that New York’s neon is unexceptional in comparison to Chicago's or Portland's. I wanted to prove otherwise," she writes. "I also wanted to demonstrate (mostly to myself) that the quirky, independent New York is still here — it’s not all chain stores, standard-issue vinyl awnings and luxury condos.

She has Flickred and mapped their locations in case you want to check them out.
