T-Plus-2 and Counting

I was walking down Second Avenue this past Sunday, past the formerly-beloved Stage Restaurant, when a thought occurred to me: How long will it be before some intrepid East Villager "liberates" this sign:

Stage Restaurant sign. 

I took a close look at it and it's not held in place by very much — almost anyone could probably take it down!

It won't be worth much, but it might look good in some beloved-artifact collector's living room!

Any wagers?!

  1. a wonderful mix of fonts, shapes, colors, and, telling you exactly what it is all about. that IS a ultra-super-classic EV sign!


  2. Ever thought perhaps Roman wants it?

    1. If he does, he needs to take it. You saw how quickly the Invader mosaics disappeared. And do you remember the painting of Stefan and company in the old Holiday? That thing was so fixed to the wall, it would have been easier for someone who wanted it to take down the wall than remove the painting from it! This is also why there were never any books on anarchism at the beloved St. Mark's Bookshop — anarchists liberated them!
