Brooklyn-based French photographer Franck Bohbot has a new series New York Light On that features the storefronts of New York City that illuminate the dark streets at night. No stranger to photographing New York (the photographer also released a series on Chinatown earlier this year), New York Light On features some of the most iconic NYC storefronts.

From the many images found on Fubiz, we saw landmarks like Katz’s Deli, the Sunshine Theatre and Radio City Music Hall, mixed with neighborhood favorites like Soup ‘n’ Burger, Two Boots Pizza and La Esquina. We also love the inclusion of some of Times Square’s peep shows, pushed further west of course, contrasted with new signage like “SKATE” in Manhattan. There’s an almost ethereal quality to the photographs through long exposure that differ from the more typical sharp contrast photographs in previous series we’ve seen of neon signage at night.
