Urban Light - 200 Lit Lampposts

It's just a large collection of lampposts, lit up at night. Kind of odd, since it's rare to see 200 in orderly rows in such tight formation, but not groundbreaking.

Worth a look if you're stopping at the nearby La Brea Tar Pits.

Best seen at night, of course...Artist Chris Burden created this installation of 200 old cast-iron lampposts from the 1920s and '30s. It's right along Wilshire Blvd.
