SoHo

One thing you will notice while walking around in SoHo are little glass discs in the sidewalk. Turns out they actually have a name. Sidewalk vault lights is what they are called. They are made out of cast-iron panels with glass disc inlays and were pretty popular until the 1930s. Their original function was to bring light into basements that extended out under sidewalks, but I think they also make for great pictures…
