Say it ain’t so! Fans of subtlety and restraint, pay no mind here. The rest of you, grieve, an era is coming to an end. Anyone who has gone up Latona between 40th and 42nd near a holiday has seen the brilliant, over the top displays of light and kitsch, but no more.
Yep, you’re reading it right. Next Friday through Sunday, the house that lit the neighborhood, 4059 Latona Ave NE, will be selling off its lights and more.
Here’s what Christmas looked like on Latona. Pour one out.
