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

Superman would approve of the diligent job this man is doing of dusting the iconic globe in the Daily Planet lobby on 42nd Street. #superman #globes #nyc #igersnyc #artdeco #roadsideamerica #americana #oldschool

Papaya King is indeed retro hot-dog royalty in New York — and this is why. This storefront in the East Village opened last year but is infused with the vintage DNA of the original location at 86th and Third, which dates to 1932. This is a very cool “concept store” that restores some badly needed neon glow to Gotham’s streets. #midcentury #signgeeks #rous_roadsigns #roadsideamerica #hotdog #nyc #newyork #igersnyc #americana #typography

I’ve photographed many a vintage #DQ, but this is something else: On May 27, this will become the first Dairy Queen in Manhattan. And they’ll even sell Orange Julius — longtime NYers remember the old stand at Penn Station. What a great start to summer in the city. #dairyqueen #nyc #newyork

Three icons for the price of one! Just swap Met Life for Pan Am and this would be perfect. #nyc #newyork #gct #grandcentralterminal #gct #chryslerbuilding
