Earlier this month, it was announced that a project to replace Brooklyn Heights street lamps with historically accurate “Bishop’s Crooks” fixtures would begin soon. The paper has written about the $650k in Federal and NYC dollars being used to fund Phase 1 of the proposed $2.7 million plan calling it “pork”. This week the paper continues its assault on our landmark district with a cartoon poking fun at the streetlight plan.
While it’s true that we’re in a recession, these fixtures will last far longer than this economic downturn. What do you think?
