Historic Street Lampposts (Lamppost 9)
Financial District, Manhattan, New York City, New York, United States
24M (type-M) Post nos. 7-15, 45, 78, 95.
A simplified descendent of the mast arm post first used as part of the "Boulevard" lighting system (fig. 21). The base and shaft match the 24A bishop's crook. Two designs of scrollwork between the arm and shaft were used. This is the closest old model of mast arm post to those now being reproduced. The reproductions incorporate the garland on the shaft and the newer style of scrollwork.
Approximately 100 historic, cast-iron lampposts are known to survive in the City of New York. The earliest, dating from the mid-nineteenth century, are two gas lampposts. Electric lights first appeared in 1880, on Broadway. The first installation of truly ornamental electrified cast-iron posts occurred on Fifth Avenue in 1892.
By the 1930s, New York streets were lighted by an extraordinary variety of lampposts, brackets, and pedestals. During the 1950s and 1960s most of these posts were replaced by "modern" steel and aluminum types. Approximately 100 old iron posts and brackets have been identified; some have survived by accident, while others have been preserved by the special effort of the Friends of Cast-Iron Architecture. Now often standing in forgotten urban spaces or oddly quaint in their juxtaposition to modern buildings, these lampposts reflected the variety and exuberance of the city's architecture. Those which survive continue to grace (and, in most cases, light) the city's streets and are maintained under the jurisdiction of the Department of Transportation.
Sixty-two lampposts and four wall bracket lamps are included in this designation. The remainder are already protected within designated historic districts or are on designated landmark sites.
A Brief History of Street Lighting
The history of street lighting in New York, as in other major cities throughout the world, closely parallels that of the development of lighting technology. From candles and oil, through gas, to electricity, street lights have always reflected the technology and tastes of their time.
Candles and Oil The first efforts at coordinated street lighting in urban settings appear to have begun in the seventeenth century, although some attempts at lighting for feast days may date to medieval times.1 Between 1667 and 1763, Paris had as many as 6,500 candle lanterns suspended fifteen feet above streets and installed fifteen yards apart. Pulleys at each side allowed for servicing from adjoining buildings. The candles were lit twenty nights per month (moonlight provided sufficient light on other nights) and from October through March.2
Amsterdam streets were lighted by oil lamps in 1669, those in Hamburg in 1675, and those in Vienna in 1687.3 In London, a 1694 licensing arrangement called for oil lamps to be lighted at every tenth house from 6:00P.M. to midnight between Michaelmas (September 29) and Lady (Annunciation) Day (March 25). The City of London took over the job in 1736 and installed 5,000 lamps in the streets, five times the previous number. By 1738 there were 15,000 oil lamps lighting the streets of London.4
On November 23, 1697, the Common Council of New York, "having considered 'the great Inconveniency that Attends this Citty being A trading place for want of having lights in the Darke time of ye moon in the winter season,' it is ordered 'that all and Every of the house Keepers within this Citty Shall put out lights in their Windows fronting ye Respective Streets.'" Shortly thereafter the requirement was changed to every seventh house, and this method of street illumination continued for over 60 years.5 In 1762, the city was authorized to levy a tax for installing lamps, paying watchmen to attend them, and purchasing oil,6 apparently representing the city's first attempt at municipal street lighting. Contemporary illustrations depict polygonal lanterns atop plain wood posts (figs. 1 and 2).
Gas lighting was first exhibited in London's Pall Mall for the King's birthday in 1805. In 1809 this street was the first in the world to be permanently lighted by gas. By 1823, 215 miles of London streets
were lighted with over 39,000 gas lamps.7
Shortly after Baltimore became the first city in the U.S. to introduce gas street lighting in 1817, the New York Gas Light Co. was incorporated on March 26, 1823. A few weeks later, it was awarded the first franchise to supply the city with "buildings, works, and apparatus for the preparation and manufacture of gas; cause the necessary pipes to be made of cast iron, and to be laid; and manufacture and supply in the most approved manner sufficient quantities of the best quality gas...for lighting Broadway from Grand Street to the Battery." This work was completed on May 11, 1825. The next year the city contracted with New York Gas Light to extend its system of gas lines and cast-iron lampposts to all streets between the
