It appears that the "Eiffel Tower of Brooklyn," aka the now defunct Parachute Jump in Coney Island, is going to get an illuminating makeover! Back in March the NYCEDC, who have been working on rehabilitating the landmarked amusement ride for years, announced they wanted to bring a new lighting scheme to the structure. Now NY1 reports that "Zamperla, the company that runs Luna Park, has won the city's bid to add lights." The proposal will go before the Landmarks Preservation Commission on December 11th, and they could be installed as soon as next summer.
Currently the lighting incorporates over 150 fixtures, 450 LEDs and 17 lamps—it's also programmable with different schemes reflecting the seasons, holidays, and lunar cycles throughout the year.
