There is an evolution that has occurred in the use of lighting both inside and outside. Outside it can get quite visual. With the unbelievable variety of fixtures, colors and uses of LED lights, there are many cities and streets across our nation that have “lit up” in big ways while often providing enhanced public safety. There’s an impactful visual excitement the lighting creates that can often be programed to make the city appear to animate at night!
We thought we would feature some of these amazing cities at night so you can enjoy the vibrant nighttime scenes! What can be done with today’s LED lighting is artistic and inspirational.
PHILADELPHIA’S AVENUE OF THE ARTS
Philadelphia proudly claims their Avenue of the Arts as their signature street. It is home to many residents, educational facilities, tourists destinations and amazing performing arts. It is the perfect picture to present in our “Amazing Cities at Night” presentation.
GROUND ZERO AND ONE WORLD TRADE CENTER IN NEW YORK CITY
What was once “Ground Zero” of the 9/11 attack on our country, is now the home of the tallest building in New York City. Proudly standing tall in lower Manhattan, it is the third tallest building in the world, the Freedom Tower. The beacon at the top of it is lit with hundreds of red, white and blue LED lights.
The Dallas Skyline is quite a sight and it’s crown jewel is the Bank of America building which displays over nine thousand feet of LED lights! These new lights, which replaced the original green argon gas lights, are capable of 256 million color combinations!
SEATTLE SPACE NEEDLE
In December 2018 the Seattle Space Needle gave its inaugural light show on New Years Eve. Using LED and projection technology, Seattle was treated to a spectacular light show. Now the Space Needle will light up on holidays and other special occasions.
