PSFS Sign needs preservation.

About

PSFS Sign needs preservation.

On top of this building is the iconic PSFS sign. The Philadelphia Saving(s) Fund Society Building was the first modern skyscraper in America. The sign is neon, but the owner, Loews, wants to go to LED. Neon expert Len Davidson calls it demolition by neglect. See the Philadelphia Inquirer, 5/27/15, at p.p B1, 4.
