      Project Neon: One Brooklynite’s Love for Old-School Signage Sparks an iPhone App and an Art Show

      The recent news in The Brooklyn Paper that the Bay Ridge soda shoppe called Hinsch’s has shuttered reminded us of a very cool link a friend sent us a few months back to a site called Project Neon. Hinsch’s was known as much for its neon signage at Fifth Avenue and 86th Street as its scoops of ice cream, which were still served old-school style in tiny metal trays. It’s one of the many city places cataloged by Brooklyn photographer Kirsten Hively on her Tumblr and Flickr sites.
