16 Iconic Signs That Define And Light Up D.C.

New, 2 comments

D.C. is not a city really known for our famous signs. Yes, the District has famous monuments and impressive architecture galore, but when it comes to signage, there's nothing quite like the Hollywood sign in Los Angeles or the Radio City Music Hall sign in New York. That doesn't mean that that we're devoid of interesting fonts and lightbulbs, but it does mean that more that it means that the interesting signs aren't city-defining so much as indicative of neighborhood character. Also, some of the coolest exhibitions of neon involve traveling to the near-in suburbs. Curbed has put together a gallery of the sixteen most interesting signs in the D.C. area. By all means, if you don't see your favorite, throw a suggestion in the comments.
