Hong Kong is losing most of its iconic neon signs

02:50

Hong Kong’s iconic neon-soaked streets are losing their luster due to new safety regulations. Less than 500 neon signs now remain in the city as conservationist and craftsmen struggle to keep the craft alive. Janis Mackey Frayer reports on the residents who fear the city is losing an essential part of its identity. Correction: An earlier version of this report misstated the number of neon signs remaining in Hong Kong. A 2011 survey by the Hong Kong government found 120,000 signs of all kinds – including neon – in the city.
