      That original photo is gorgeous. The new one makes me sad.

      There's so much dead neon in Chinatown SF. Too bad, because more neon would really look great there.

      Terrific to see this sign illuminated, though... and for the most part, the rest of this street still looks exactly the same.

      My fingers are crossed that Chinatown's neon will be relit, eventually. It's still there and beautiful. That's a fact I'll remain grateful for.

      Thanks for you comments guys. I didn't realize that the neon was still on the buildings in some fashion. It sure would be great to see it all reilluminated.
