Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced Thursday that the city is replacing all 250,000 of its street lights with light-emitting diodes, known as LEDs.
The plan is expected to save at least $14 million per year.
New York's traditional street lights will have a slightly different look when the LEDs are attached.
Historic street lights will stay the same, but the bulbs will be different.
I hope it's not the headache-inducing LEDs!
