Curbed Boston | By Tom Acitelli
October 13, 2016
The city on Thursday evening plans to turn on 325 recently installed LED lights on existing nooks and crannies around City Hall and its plaza as well as on new poles. The inaugural illumination is part of the final Beer Garden on the Bricks of 2016, also Thursday evening (a.k.a. tonight).
The lights are supposed to not only look more inviting than their less-energy-efficient predecessors, but make the area that much safer in the darkness and save Boston money in the long run.
