A couple of years ago I obtained my best photo yet of the wall-mounted Bishop Crook mast located on the Nassau Street side of the former New York Times building fronting on Park Row and Beekman Street.
There are still a number of classic wall-mounted streetlamps in New York City installed in the first few decades of the 20th Century, though one or two seems to disappear every year. Most are in the form of lengthy “Type G” Corvington masts and are used in truck loading zones when the city didn’t want to place conventional curbside lampposts and make them vulnerable to being attacked by trucks backing into loading zones or garages. Other wall brackets are used where sidewalks are narrow and the city, again, did not want to make traditional curbside lampposts vulnerable.
This seems to be the only remaining Bishop Crook wall bracket lamp. I do not know if it still works, though the presence of a photocell indicates that it once did, if it doesn’t now. In my memory the glass diffuser bowl has not been present.
