Photo of the day: glowing traffic barriers

March 11, 2011

Photo taken on Broad Street in Lower Manhattan a couple of nights ago. I’d never seen these before. These red-lit bollards are on a large turntable (about 16 ft in diameter) that silently turns to allow traffic to pass. The large turntable is actually cobblestone covered! I guess they’re trying to put a prettier, glowing, face on one of the most securitized urban blocks in the country.
