Forgotten City Lights

A Photographic Archive of NYC’s Street Lamposts
Curated by “Forgotten New York” author and webmaster, Kevin Walsh and NYC transit employee and enthusiast, Bob Mulero

Join us on July 15th from 7-10 pm for the opening reception of a truly illuminating exhibition, FORGOTTEN CITY LIGHTS: A Photographic Archive of NYC’s Street Lamposts. This show 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 efforts by the (seemingly) omniscient Kevin Walsh, whose website Forgotten NY 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!
Refreshments by Brooklyn Brewery
Donations gratefully accepted.
