I don’t think I’ve mentioned the short-statured Bishop Crook found on the east side of Steinway Street north of 30th Avenue in front of the Riou Bar & Lounge (which was there in 2017). It is either a short Crook used under elevated trains, or else has been sawn off to its current height. It still has the original brackets and frames used for street signs; over the years, owners of the storefront directly in front of the post have placed the names of their businesses in it. Unfortunately with this sun angle I didn’t get the name that was there in 1999 when I shot the photo. By 2016 the signs had “New York Hair Salon” and the Riou had declined to replace the signs with its name. The glass reflector bowl had also disappeared, and I’m not sure the lamp is functional, not having been here at night.
For some decades, the Waterfront Crabhouse restaurant at Borden Avenue and 2nd Street in Hunters Point has had a pair of Bishop Crook lamps outside the front entrance, and they have survived despite a change in ownership. These are more clearly hybrids, being Type B park lamp bases with Bishop Crook masts rather crudely affixed at their apices. This combo has never been used on a NYC street.
