The Telectroscope lets Brooklyn see London

By Sean O'Neill
updated February 21, 2017

An amazing optical device dubbed the Telectroscope has been installed at the Brooklyn base of the Brooklyn Bridge and by London's City Hall, miraculously permitting New Yorkers and Londoners to see each other--live.

Through June 15, this art installation at Old Fulton Street at Fulton Ferry Landing will be open and part of the celebrations for the 125th anniversary of the Brooklyn Bridge's opening. Peer into a giant copper and wood lenses that poke out of the Earth's surface, and you can see excited crowds in London waving back. Details at the Telectroscope website.
