Little Italy/College Street

The cornice and brickwork on this building at Dovercourt were recently just refurbished, the embedded night lighting is a really nice touch, a bit of whimsy!

Appreciate the post, but this is the rare case, I'm not sold on this architectural lighting. Very inconsistent w/historically normative choices.

If this were to be lit, I think I'd prefer more subtle up lighting myself.

I would maybe argue from a historically accuracy lens that buildings often used similar lighting during the holiday seasons so it's not totally out of context, though you are right that it was not really used as an all year permanent thing.
