21st Century Lighting for a 20th Century New York Landmark.

The Barbizon Lighting Company's NYC offices have been hard at work behind the scenes at the iconic 230 Park Ave, Helmsley building, an NYC Landmark, updating the 20th Century building's architectural lighting and control to bring it into the 21st Century.  The new system is comprised of color agile LED fixtures and can be programmed from a central location.

The building is owned and managed by RXR Realty and it’s CEO & Chairman, Scott Rechler, called late this week with an urgent requested that the building be lit for the 2018 Presidents Day weekend (Fri, 2/16 - Mon, 2/19, 2018) in ORANGE in honor of the Parkland shooting victims. Orange is the color of the anti-gun violence movement, which Scott strongly supports.

A tip of the hard hat to Barbizon Lighting NYC service techs David Bull, Yuriy Pavlutskyy, and Colin Colfer for spearheading the department's efforts.
