City Lights Comes to the Flatiron District

NYCDOT has begun work on City Light, a distinctive lighting project in the Flatiron District. The 63 energy efficient light poles will feature LED light bulbs for greater illumination along 23rd Street (between Third and Sixth Avenue) and Broadway (between 20th and 28th Street).

Architect Thomas Phifer & Partners was the winner of an international design competition held by the NYC Department of Design & Construction (DDC). City Lights seamlessly provides crisper light through light-emitting diodes (LED).

The City Lights program has been long-supported by the Flatiron/23rd Street Partnership and Phase One was funded with a $575,000 grant from New York City Council and the Manhattan Borough President. City Lights enhance safety in the district by providing higher quality lighting while improving the public realm through the new design.

“This much-anticipated project will help this dynamic neighborhood shine even more – and while saving energy,” said Jennifer Brown, Executive Director of the Flatiron/23rd Street Partnership. “I’d like to thank the DOT and DDC, and our City officials for their work to improve the pedestrian experience with this sleek, new amenity.”

Each new fixture will include LEDs, which provide higher-quality, more natural light. Further benefits include  reduced maintenance costs, more efficient electricity usage, and a lower carbon footprint.
