LED Streetlights in Brooklyn Are Saving Energy but Exhausting Residents
The future is bright on the streets of New York. For Jolanta Benal and her neighbors in Windsor Terrace, Brooklyn, it is far too bright. “It feels like I’m in a strip mall in outer space,” Ms. Benal said while sitting in her house on Horace Court last week. Light from outside was spilling into the living room, around the velvet drapes she replaced her sheer curtains with. “I don’t want to come off as melodramatic, but it really is horrible,” she said.
