Has anyone noticed that little by little the street lights in Rochester's residential neighborhoods are being replaced with much brighter lights? The light at the corner of N. Castell and W. Third is an example. I think the new bulbs/lights are way too bright for a residential area. Do the corners of our residential neighborhoods need to be lit up like an airport parking lot? I think not.
Perhaps a different type of bulb should be considered. Perhaps shades of some sort could be installed to direct the light down on the street and not out on the entire area.
Rochester's residential neighborhoods have great charm; let's not ruin that with "big city lights."
Light pollution is just as real as noise pollution.
