It’s Lights Out for ‘Oggi Lighting’ Longtimer on the Bowery

It’s lights out for another Bowery stalwart. Oggi Lighting at the southwest corner of Kenmare Street is going out of business. The loss marks another blow to the lighting district, which has been hemorrhaging business for years.
A large yellow sign in the window of 166 Bowery announces the forthcoming closure and requisite clearance sale.
This particular block really is the last bastion of the once-bright Bowery lighting district. With the loss of Oggi, there are now three such vendors remaining on this stretch. The Lighthouse, Lighting by Gregory, and the Lighting Studio operate side-by-side.
Oggi Lighting has been on the Bowery for well over a decade. It previously operated a second location across the street at 153 Bowery.
