Shine-A-Light: Neon Walking Tour of the Lower East Side

May 8, 2014
Sponsored by Lower East Side Preservation Initiative

Neon signage – bold, colorful, flashy, and often beautiful – is emblematic of New York itself, and particularly the Lower East Side with its exuberant and diverse immigration, political, and cultural history.

Join Tom Rinaldi, architectural designer and author of New York Neon, in a rollicking tour of some of the most striking and historically interesting Lower East Side neon, including Katz’s, Russ and Daughter’s, Gringer Appliances, and lesser known gems.

Thursday, May 8th, 6:30 PM

Meet in front of John’s Restaurant 302 East 12th St. just west of 2nd Ave.

Admission: $20  LESPI Members: $15
