lonnie's coffee shoppe sign looking for a new home

You may remember hearing a while back about the old Lonnie's Coffee Shoppe sign, a piece of history that had found a place on the wall inside U-Choose Express, a noodle shop in New York's Chinatown: It's a Sign, Evoking Memories of Lonnie's in Chinatown. More here: Preserving Chinatown's doo-wop era.

Sadly, U-Choose is no more, and has been replaced by a new restaurant, Pho 21. The old Lonnie's sign apparently doesn't fit with the new restaurant's decor, and now needs a new place to hang: The lonnie's coffee shoppe sign looks for a new home. Maybe someone out there has a good place for it, or knows of a cool museum that would be appropriate for the sign.
