What is the popularity of neon signage in your city today and by era. In American cities the height of its popularity was from the 1930's to 1960's.

1) American downtown have sign ordinances. These codes usually limit the character and amount of advertising space on buildings. For example, they would limit the signage to X% of the building's linear width, and they would also limit the total number of signs.

2) In American culture, neon lights are often considered tacky, "loud", low-class, tasteless, etc. We often view neon lights as something only for Las Vegas, or maybe fast-food restaurants.
