Last week, the New York Times took a look at a proposed City Council bill that would require thousands of buildings to dim their lights overnight. Of course, from an environmental standpoint this is great — save energy, cut greenhouse gas emissions, and make flying through our skies safer for migratory birds. But not everyone is happy about the proposal. Some feel the special concessions that would be given to buildings found to be “a significant part of the city’s skyline” are unfair, and others worry about safety, noting that a dark streetscape would render security cameras useless at night. Where do you fall in this debate?
