I thought that was a clip not the whole film. Cool.

The Citgo sign has nothing to do with Venezuela. It does not make a poliltical statement. It evokes memories of games at Fenway; drunken nights on a friend's rooftop in college; getting lost in Boston and driving toward it's flashing Beacon and safety.

There is a flying eagle neon sign outside of the Budweiser brewery (across from Newark Airport) in Newark NJ that I have always been fascinated by. Growing up I could see it from my bedroom window (along with the flames from the cracking towers along the NJ Turnpike). Whenever I saw it, I was home.


I did not know about the removal threat to the Citgo sign. I am amazed that Boston would consider this removal, but promotes the addition of aesthetically questionable street furniture like the kiosks on the streets below this neighborhood and city symbol.
