The rather prominent blade neon sign hangs off this restaurant in Albany. Lombardo's Grill has been in operation since 1919. When prohibition was repealed in 1934, an Italian consulate office and ice cream parlor was acquired and converted to the current barroom. Check out the Lombardo's website for more information. 10-09







I saw this Coney Island sign and figured when done photographing I would pop into this place. This sign for the Coney Island Hot Dogs is quite large, somewhere around two stories of neon bliss making it one of the most fantastic vintage signs I ever saw. The drips of mustard are animated. 01-13 ~ Richard Weiss
