Red Lantern, sorry you're gone. You were a community hub in Fort Greene, a place where all kinds of people cross paths and rub elbows, like they do on the subway. And that was real healthy in a changing, diverse neighborhood, that casual interaction with others. It cultivated a chill, easy familiarity between neighbors, and broke down walls of class, age, and race. You’d see all types at Red Lantern: young, old, black, white, hip, square, overworked, underemployed. Families, singles, couples, and friends. Everyone was there for bikes, beer, food, and coffee. It was a big tent, that place, and everyone was welcome. Damn. RIP, Red Lantern.

This image is featured in my book Bars, Taverns and Dives New Yorkers Love, available here.

The artwork is available in three sizes:

• As a quality giclée print on 16" by 20" Fine Art Bright White 100% cotton rag acid-free, archival 230 gsm paper, each one signed and numbered as part of a limited edition of 100. This option also comes in a thin, black frame (for New York City pickup only).

• As an 11" by 14" signed giclée print on Fine Art Bright White 100% cotton rag acid-free, archival 230 gsm paper. 

• As an 8" by 10" signed giclée print on Fine Art Bright White 100% cotton rag acid-free, archival 230 gsm paper.

All sizes are perfect size for a standard frame.

Prints will ship in a sturdy flat mailer free of charge in the USA.
