Endangered species?

The roof mounted sign I mean, not necessarily the YMCA!

Once they were a common sight around town, especially on top of the buildings that line south Michigan Avenue. Contemporary aesthetics and "good taste" seem to have sent these things headed toward the dustbin of history, but to me what better symbols of the urban experience than the classic neon sign ontop of a skyscraper?
