This new Corvington longarm lamp at Avenue R and Kings Highway in Brooklyn was installed missing some scrollwork.

What scrollwork is missing? Please tell me. I am a resident of Maspeth and there are street posts with scrolls exactly like that.
What’s wrong with the streetlight? (Seriously, I see nothing wrong with the lamp’s scrollwork, but maybe I don;t see it because I live in Maspeth where every streetlight looks like that.)
There’s a missing piece, on the bottom
Oh. Thank you, I didn’t realize that until I looked closely.
Also, it appears that instead of a vine and flower pattern, it is plain metal scrollwork.
Do they all have some missing scrollwork? I was riding on the Metro-North train and somewhere in Westchester county I saw all the Corvington longarm lamp without scrollwork. I need to go see this this. How do I get to Ave. R & Kings Hwy? (By subway)
Take the Q or F to Kings Highway
Just that one has missing scrolls.
I like the lights with the plain scrollwork. Not like the above pattern..
It’s actually on the corner of Avenue R and East 5th street. It’s in the street view on Google Maps. The 2 on the corners of Kings Highway and East 5th street are correct(not missing the scroll work).
