The long-shuttered chrome and Art Deco bar at the corner of Henry Street and Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn got its wraparound signage reinstalled yesterday. New owners Toby Cecchini and Joel Tompkins had the approximately 60-year-old sign dismantled in early June so it could be restored at Let There Be Neon in Tribeca. The pair will reopen Long Island Restaurant this fall. [Earlier]
