Neon marvels in Chelsea
Two of New York's finest neons signs are neighbors. There's the lush red sign for El Quijote, the Spanish restaurant that's been holding the fort on 23rd Street since 1930. If you've never been, you're missing a great, authentic New York experience. And right next door stands the great sign for the Hotel Chelsea.
Alas, there used to be a great third sign, for Capitol Fishing Tackle. You can see it here. That sign was taken down a few years ago when the store moved to the Garment District. At least it stayed in business.
