A literal splash of color adds a wonderful vintage touch to an old-school laundry shop in Williamsburg. A holdover of a time and place long gone. #signgeeks #williamsburg #brooklyn #nyc #instagramnyc

A “hot” historic find: When the modern sign for a shop called Game Champ went down, this hidden neon beauty emerged from the shadows. The sign for Hot Bagels — complete with “flames” and holes where the neon tubing used to be — is in Bay Ridge on 86th Street. #brooklyn #bagels #nyc #bayridge #history #urbanarchaeology

We’ve all heard of Muffler Men — well, meet the Muffler Family! This is a wonderful piece of folk art. This patriotic family unit — complete with Muffler Dog, a baby on a bottle and other great details — greets customers at a Meineke Car Care shop on Fourth Avenue in Brooklyn. #mufflermen #folkart #foundart #streetart #brooklyn #parkslope #igersnyc #nyc #newyork #instapic #instadaily #photowall #icatching

This one hurts. The beloved Manhattan dive bar Subway Inn, with one of New York’s most gorgeous neon signs, is closing next month. The owners of the bar, which dates to 1937, say they will relocate. I hope that neon will keep shining on somewhere else, because its departure is a big loss. #igersnyc #nyc #manhattan

This is part of a magnificent ceiling mural in the lobby of the Chrysler Building, which was once  New York’s tallest building. Look up next time you’re in the lobby. The ceiling is gorgeous and easy to miss. #artdeco #nyc #igersnyc #architecture

Behold, Manhattan, all of it! As seen today from a plane is the island in its staggering entirety, from the last patch of original forest in Inwood in the northern reaches, to the World Trade Center’s spire at the southern end. And in between lies the wonder city — all of it. #newyork #nyc #ignyc #ignewyork #picoftheday #photooftheday

Had the good fortune to ride the @pix11news #Seinfeldtrain tonight. Considering I promoted it on PIX11.com, it was neat to see it pull in. The friendly train conductor was an added benefit.  #seinfeld #subway #nyc #igersnyc
