Dapper Dan Down

When I saw a new sign for Chelsea Bagel where the delightful "ghost" sign for Dapper Dan once hung, I figured the old was tucked back under the new, waiting for the day when Chelsea Bagel will fold and it can be uncovered once again, delighting the future nostalgists of New York.

But no.

Commenter evilsugar25 informs us that the sign was taken down and removed. And here's the photo evidence:

Damn you, Chelsea Bagel. Damn you to Hell!

Destroying the past, one bagel at a time.

Say, any idea what happened to the old sign?

Glad I managed to get a few pics snapped before its inevitable removal...

Can you IMMEDIATELY get in touch with the business owner, and have him work with you to donate it to the American Sign Museum or the City Reliquary in Brooklyn? Tell him he/she would receive favorable press from local history buffs. Also, contact the Manhattan BP. E-mail me at with any questions.
