Living the Hy Life….101 years young and socket to ya!

“I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work, the more I live. I rejoice in life for its own sake. Life is no brief candle to me. It is a sort of splendid torch which I have got hold of for the moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations.”-George Bernard Shaw

Hy Goldman has this quote written down by his Capitol Lighting workshop and these words he holds close to his heart, words by which he lives and works everyday.

In this day and age of the perpetual search for easy money and enhanced leisure time, we hold dear to the depth of character and a man living life with determination and heart. These are values that keep Hy Goldman gently, diligently and graciously flowing along and miraculously coming to work every day with a smile and a purpose….for the last 73 years.

At 101 years of age, Hy still drives himself to work, walks up a hefty flight of stairs and begins crafting and restoring lamps and lighting fixtures at Capitol Lighting’s East Hanover, New Jersey showroom.

This is where you will find Hy working his magic and offering his wisdom…
