Lamp Light Pile

What was this a pile of, I wondered. They looked so weird, almost like toys. A security guard at Bryant Park told me, those are for the streetlamps. They’re replacing the lamp portion I asked – although that assumes the pole is distinct from the lamp which is probably incorrect so perhaps the right term is lantern – instead of just the bulbs. That’s how they do it now, he tells me, they replace the whole thing not just the bulb. The bulb is part of the streetlamp.
