Neon Signs -- Outside of Times Square
Times Square still dazzles me, but it doesn't hold the same magic it once did.
It's difficult not to be struck by the shear number of lights and signs, and it's a nighttime experience no visitor to New York should miss. Now, however, I'm taking greater notice of New York's smaller neon signs -- the ones that have been up seemingly forever that don't threaten to give you a seizure every time you glance at them.
They're like Times Square's countrified cousins.If ever neon signs can be homey and down-to-earth, these are it.
