City Light Pole

Usage: Distinctive

In 2004, an international design competition was held to develop a signature street light for New York City. The winning entry, the City Light, was added to DOT’s lighting catalogue after extensive development and testing. This simple, elegant pole and luminaire provide less glare than other luminaires and complement both contemporary architecture and historic structures.
