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.
