This super cool Pink Neon Sign may (or may not) be the official movie prop seen in the apartment of Michelle Pfeiffer’s Catwoman from Tim Burton’s 1992 film, Batman Returns. I mean, it’s for sale on Amazon, so anyone could own it. However, I did see it in the Hollywood Museum tucked away in a large vitrine brimming with a collection of authentic Catwoman costumes and assorted ephemera from the various actresses who’ve played that character — both in films and on TV. So, all signs point to be it being the real thing, as they say.

Dress Up My Lindsay By Marika Thunder at Public Access Gallery
Long-haul New Yorker’s (and East Villagers like me, especially) constantly bemoan the fact that Manhattan is becoming increasingly gentrified. The innumerable local-business closures caused by the pandemic have only exacerbated the loss of historical identity in an area that was once arguably the coolest neighborhood in NYC. When the legendary Rock & Roll boutique Trash & Vaudeville was forced to relocate from St. Mark’s Place after four decades in the same location, it really felt like nothing is sacred.
