With 8,000 square feet of labyrinthine display space, seventeen floors of inventory, and models from more than 140 manufacturers, Lighting By Gregory comes as close to the proverbial Light of Ten-Thousand Suns as is possible on the isle of Manhattan. There's something here for even the darkest corners of the home, from $20 closet tap lights to five-figure chandeliers, by brands like Flos, Holtkötter, and Schonbek. There's also a wide selection of ceiling fans and, of course, light bulbs. (An entire closet, for instance, is devoted entirely to very small bulbs.) When it comes to knowledge of their products, the staff is, in a word, “bright.” And while they don't offer an installation service, they are happy to recommend reliable electricians. If you're looking for the man in charge, though, don't let the store's moniker mislead you. Though shop namesake Gregory does work there, his father, Joel, runs the operation.
