Iconic Rainbow Cafe Signs Taken Down

The beautifully signed Rainbow Cafe in Sunset Park closed up shop in 2008, and then was sold in 2010. All this while, we wondered what would become of the former restaurant's splendiferous, old-school, neon signage.

Today, a read wrote in to say, "All the signs were removed today by Paul Signs Inc. Brooklyn NY. They were still intact and not damaged when they took them away."

Where are they going? Will they be preserved? Who's moving in? So many questions.

Thanks for the information. I was by there last week & took pictures of the signs again. Didn't know it would be for the last time, though it didn't look like they'd be around much longer. They really were beautiful.
