BROADWAY LAMP, Williamsburg

Share on Twitter

From the collection of Bob Mulero, the King of NYC Lampposts, comes this view of a possibly one-of-a-kind lamp that used to stand at the Brooklyn-bound exit ramp of the Williamsburg Bridge at Broadway and Roebling Street. This was nearly the ends of the earth back then, the Ultima Thule, where limos with armed guards would idle at Peter Luger and the mobsters, movers and shakers would steal in for a steak dinner.

Now, of course, the area has been completely spiffed up for the nouveau and not so nouveau riche, and even the domed Williamsburg Bank itself has become condominiums.
