HONG KONG (AP) — For Hong Kong's famed neon lights, the future looks dim.Neon-lit signs were once ubiquitous here, illuminating city streets with their soft, warm glow and giving the dynamic Asian city a signature look to match its postwar economic boom.Tens of thousands of signs on countless tower blocks advertise restaurants, nightclubs, saunas, camera shops and jewelry boutiques in a rainbow of garish hues. Many are cantilevered far out over the street, competing for visitors' attention.Few symbols have come to represent Hong Kong as much its skyline of flashing and blinking neon billboards.That visual heritage is now under threat.

Harvey Milk Plaza, a dated transit hub and gathering place at the intersection of Market and Castro streets, will soon be lit in white neon and an array of rainbow colors shooting into the sky to honor the slain San Francisco supervisor. The two light sculptures by the nonprofit Illuminate will be unveiled Nov. 8 at a free public ceremony to honor the 40th anniversary of Milk’s election to the Board of Supervisors, which made him the first openly gay person to be elected to public office in California. The artwork and dedication were initiated by the Friends of Harvey Milk Plaza as the beacon for a planned multimillion-dollar remake of the public space outside the Castro Muni Metro Station.
