Spoiler alert: do not read any further unless you want the answer revealed.
Solved by Ellis Morley Photography, who correctly identified it (in only a few minutes) as a neon-lit wall inside Toys R Us at Times Square in New York. I shot this while on the escalator inside the store, hence the hand rail visible as a silhouette in the bottom right-hand corner.
I do not crop, enhance or post-edit my images in any way. Shot with a Pentax K100D, using a Sigma 18-125mm lens. F5.6, 1/60 sec, ISO 200, focal length 18mm.
