A charming detail from one of my favorite vintage signs in New York: Joe Junior restaurant on Third Avenue. This lip-smacking sign is indeed good enough to eat. #retrosigns #retrologist #nyc #newyorkcity #burgers #hamburgers #cartoon #typography #ig_signage #rous_roadsigns #signhunting #signgeeks #signstalkers #signfixation #americana #roadsideamerica #1950s #1960s #1970s #oldnyc

La Taza de Oro (the golden cup) is a true survivor in a neighborhood that has transformed around it. Delicious Puerto Rican cuisine (what a great cafe con leche they offer, BTW) in an irreplaceable midcentury luncheonette setting. And the storefront is priceless. Near 14th and 8th in Chelsea. Go! #midcentury #puertorico #criollo #nyc #newyork #chelsea #signs #oldsigns #signgeeks #rous_roadsigns #americana #oldnyc #retrologist #typography #justmytype

On this snowy Manhattan day, the neon of Neil’s Coffee Shop is a comforting sight. #neon #vintagesigns #oldsigns #coffeeshop #diner #oldnyc #signporn

The Subway Inn is one of NYC’s best neon signs. The storefront is pretty snappy during the day, too. #neon #nyc #oldsigns #signporn #inn #subway #oldnyc

The old Hotel Tudor is now a Hilton, but the corporate hands haven’t gotten around to taking down the old sign, a Midtown East unofficial landmark. Hopefully it’s too costly and not worth the trouble to tear it down. This photo was taken from the 10th floor of WPIX, itself a neighborhood fixture since 1948. #signs #tudorcity #manhattan #vintage #oldnyc #murrayhill #kipsbay #unitednations #hotels #relic #artifacts #urbanarchaeology

This great old LIQUORS sign is covered up and the shop has moved away. Too bad they couldn’t take this sign. Signs of this genre are now rare gems. In an era where such stores brand themselves as refined wine shops, it’s curious to see a throwback to a time when it was all about da booze, in big red #neon letters. #liquor #wine #nyc #oldnyc #oldschool #vintage #retro
