at the City Reliquary Museum, 370 Metropolitan Ave.
Join us for the opening reception of a truly illuminating exhibit, “FORGOTTEN CITY LIGHTS: A Photographic Archive of NYC’s Street Lamposts.” This newest exhibit focuses on the often ignored but always overhead variants and styles of NYC street lamps.
With photographs taken over the past 30+ years by Bob Mulero, an employee of the MTA and an avid toy collector, Mr. Mulero has been cataloging hundreds of New York’s lampposts since the 1970s. Mr. Mulero is joined in his historical efforts by the (seemingly) omniscient Kevin Walsh, whose website chronicles (what appears to be) every single corner, cul-de-sac, dead-end, roundabout, and street direction in New York City.
July 15th, 7-10pm, FREE!
At the City Reliquary, 370 Metropolitan Avenue at Havemeyer Street
