red light district

Fifth Avenue / New York, New York
The iconic Flatiron Building, originally known as the Fuller Building, is considered to be one of the first skyscrapers ever built. Upon completion in 1902 it was one of the tallest buildings in New York City. The building sits on a triangular island block at 23rd Street, Fifth Avenue, and Broadway, at the northern end of Madison Square Park. The neighborhood around the building is called the Flatiron District after its signature building. That said, what strikes me about this shot is the complete synchronization of the red traffic lights - and corresponding brake lights of the cars.

I never knew the Flatiron was so salacious. I'm intrigued.
Wait, you meant red streetlights. Dammit. My mind was all Amsterdam hot and you were all brake light.
