Goodnight Raleigh - a look at the art, architecture, history, and people of the city at night

The Bright Lights of the Krispy Kreme Sign

The neon Krispy Kreme sign on the corner of Peace and Person Street isn’t unique to Raleigh, but it is unique in that it’s a remnant of a bygone era when such signs were prevelant throughout town. (See comments for more information on when this sign went up.) There are a few such examples left, including the bulldozer on the NC Equipment Building, the Mecca Restaurant Sign, and the famous Arby’s Cowboy Hat. The preceeding examples have all been grandfathered in — current zoning ordinances prevent new signs of this style from being constructed.
