How long do lampost bulbs in Central Park last?

How long do lampost bulbs in Central Park last?


Dear Lonnie

New York City’s Central Park was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux in the mid-to-late 1800’s.
There are nearly 9,000 benches in Central Park, most of which at night time are bathing in the incadescent light the lampost bulbs provide.
The central park lightbulbs last an average of 2500 hours.

It takes two people to change a lightbulb in Central Park.
