99 University Pl., nr. 12th St.; 212-674-0530;

Just because it’s old doesn’t mean it’s strictly period, as is proved by this very current vintage-lighting gallery. The collection specializes in lamps and fixtures from the mid-20th century but also includes furniture, mirrors, and decorative objects.$$$-$$$$

Ritter Antik
