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.
