Looks like we'll be getting some lights in our neighborhood. I wrote last week about all the turned off lights around 14th from Irving to Park, and DDOT said they were waiting for the contractors to come and turn them on. Yesterday I saw some electrical contractors out working on them, so maybe we'll have them soon.
I've also heard that they'll be taking out some of the forest of lights at those intersections, so there will be more of a unified look and feel to the area, and not a bunch of random ones strewn about like it is now.
And in honor of this, here's "More Lights" by local band Georgie James, from the 9:30 Club.
