This is the sole remaining original lamppost of the Tudor City project, developed on the east end of East 42nd Street in the late 1920s and 1930s by Fred F. French; it replaced the former gashouse and slaughterhouse district. The lamp bears great similarity to those in Forest Hills Gardens, which was built about a decade earlier. The lam p was restored in 2006 thanks to a donation by a Tudor City resident.
