As I was staggering down Roosevelt Avenue in Corona the other day, crazy from the heat, I noticed a new variety of lamppost that has appeared, a davit-style, cylindrical post. As of mid-2015 a couple of dozen of these had replaced…
The brown-painted, L-shaped fixtures holding New Gumballs that have been used under many NYC elevated trains since the mid-1980s. I suspect we won’t be seeing these anymore within a few years.
The bright white LED revolution is coming, whether you like it or not!
These new lights are blinding, accidently look at one briefly and your seeing spots, this is dangerous.
I will miss the Type BBs I loved seeing the single and double posts under els I think the new gumball and Cobra heads were cool and some of the Type BBs had fire alarm lights on them and the new poles and lamps are ugly.
