Replica street lamps on New York's West Side Highway near W28th St. The use of old style lamps seems to go against the image of modernity we would expect from a city like New York, but it's a sign that the city is confident with its historical identity. In Manchester however, we put up modern street lamps in complete Victorian streets. It's like putting a cut-price Ikea desk lamp in a Victorian drawing room.
