Yes, I noticed. Its a shame, but the whole issue of feature lighting around the city must be raised. Its in a mess – all those nice uplighters and LEDs and arty lights which were installed in happier days have fallen foul of lack of maintenance. Think of the river bridges (we were moaning about the Millennium Bridge years ago – still missing lights), the Boardwalk, some of the pavement lighting on O’C Street, a great number of prominent buildings (Lafayette Building for example).

It all goes back to maintaining and valuing the public realm.

On a brighter side (fnar fnar) a candidate for most impressive floodlighting surely goes to the newly cleaned St Patricks Cathedral – beautifully bathed in white light. Looks magnificent.
