Bay Lighting was founded in 1937 in Borough Park, Brooklyn.

The second-generation owner David Marks told us that both the #storefront and #neonsign are original. We love the lobby-style entrance with all of the #antique lighting on display as well as the #script lettering used on the #neon sign. The circle to the right which faded over the years says "Home Decor" and refers to the fact that the store also sold and repaired antique bric-a-bric and had a nice selection of #vintage #clock. Photo from 2004 and full interview appear in our book "Store Front: The Disappearing Face of New York".
