New York Neon, The Neon Signs of New York City

New York Neon by Thomas Rinaldi

The recently released book New York Neon is a visual tour of the neon signage of New York City by Thomas Rinaldi. The book includes photos of 200 of the city’s surviving signs as well as the history of neon in New York. The book is available at Amazon. For more on the neon signs of New York City, see Project Neon.

Treating New York City as an open-air museum, Thomas E. Rinaldi captures the brilliant glow of surviving early- and mid-twentieth-century neon signs, those iconic elements of the cityscape now in danger of disappearing. This visual tour features two hundred signs, identified by location, with information on their manufacture, date of creation, and the businesses that commissioned them.
