The lonnie's coffee shoppe sign looks for a new home

Sadly U-Choose Express noodle shop at 21 MOtt St. didn't make it and a new venture has taken its place. The restaurant - Pho 21 (pronounced "fuh" for noodles in Vietnamese) is a pan asian restaurant with a totally different design sensibility and as a result the old Lonnie's sign didn't fit into the new decor.
We're looking into different museums around the country that might be appropriate for the 1949 sign. Suggestions are welcome, pls. leave a comment at the bottom of this posting.

  1. Have you already looked into the Museum of the Chinese in America? I think they would be very interested in preserving this piece of history.

    Another place to inquire is the Smithsonian Museum of American History. I would start with the folks in the Asian Pacific American Program at the Smithsonian to see if they would be interested in collecting this piece.

  5. Hello, I think your web site could possibly be having
    internet browser compatibility issues. Whenever I take
    a look at your web site in Safari, it looks fine
    however when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping issues.

    I just wanted to provide you with a quick heads up!
    Aside from that, fantastic website!
