Wanted: New New York Street Lights. NYC organizes an international competition for new streetlight designs. (Those of you wishing to skip the Flash title and the framed navigation, go straight to the meat.) I have a request: lights that help minimize light pollution. (NYC Competition link via Veer Ideas.)

Considering the financial cost from of bad fixtures you'd think they'd make at least a few elements of light pollution reduction requirements for design submissions. There's no sense shining light up into the sky, at least.

or directly into my bedroom, as it were. The lights in my brooklyn neighborhood shine pretty much 360 degrees of nasty sodium lamp salmon colored light.

At the very least I'd like some white light.
