What Will Become of the Iconic Christie’s Sign?

This photo of Christie’s iconic neon sign was taken in 2009 and used first in a 2011 post for Signs of Lynn.


Perhaps David Waller of the Prime Building will be interested in adding it to his collection? Or better yet, could it see use in whatever future development occurs on the site? We’d hate for Lynn to lose another piece of its unique identity to something more generic.

Christie’s shut down its friolators for good on April 1st, 2016.

    This is a great opportunity for civic engagement — for folks to come together to envision how the space would be used to benefit the community as a whole and one of Lynn’s best treasures. If commercial development, it should be a visionary plan that serves a way to bring people together at that particular location. Maximizing private profit as the sole ultimate goal would greatly undermine a rare opportunity to engage in a community act of collaboration that would result in something good for the whole. How about now?
