EVG regular Stephen Popkin talked with Jim Power yesterday on St. Mark's Place and Second Avenue.
Stephen asked Jim about the status of his mosaic-covered lampposts that the city removed during the reconstruction of Astor Place.
"At the last Community Board meeting that I attended recently I was told that my mosaics would be preserved. They said that they would remove the lampposts and then cut them down to preserve the mosaics and try to reinstall them back into the area where they came from. I hope that they keep their word."
