"LAKE PLACID, ADIRONDACKS USA - A proposal to install floodlights throughout New York's Adirondacks aims to extend the Park's open hours, and improve visibility at night.
The concept is the brainchild of entrepreneur and electrician Jack Smith of Brooklyn, who originally came up with the idea in 1994. Smith's proposal specifies the addition of one million lumens per square mile, and utilizes existing infrastructure in the park, such as poles, transformers, cables and slow-moving wildlife."
Lots of luck getting APA (Adirondack Park Agency) approval. They couldn't get approval for additional life-safety cell towars along the Northway for years until someone was trapped for hrs. in a snowbank off the road w. no svc.
What we need Upstate are more Brooklynezze ideas for our benefit!!!
Maybe it's an April Fools joke.
Aw, geez, now we gotta live through THIS again! Every year, same ol' FOOLishness!
It's worse than the DST change!
