No Soup For You

Sigh. I noticed yesterday that the Nissin Foods sign is gone from its long perch atop 1 Times Square. The 60-foot Cup O’Noodles was the last of the “steaming” signage in Times Square, which has included over the years: a steaming Preston iron, an A&P cup of coffee, and a smoking Marlboro cigarette. Doubtlessly, Chevy plans on replacing the Nissin cup with Times Square’s zillionth Jumbotron.
