This is obviously not a recent photo; it’s from January 2009, after the stoplights had been removed from this Olive post at 110th Street and 69th Road in Forest Hills. Traffic at this corner had been controlled by a pair of stoplights, one a regulation metal cylindrical post, the other a surviving Olive, possibly the last regular route survivor. In the 2000s the Department of Transportation decided to place two larger guy-wired lights on this intersection.
The only surviving working Olives are a handful located in Central Park.
The DOT just removed the stoplights and left this post in place! I haven’t been over there in awhile, and the last Street View is from 2014.
How’s it doing?
