Binghamton still has a few pagoda-style four-way signals still in operation. There were more, including some blinker lights at various intersections, and there were some unique two-way signals that were located on Conklin Avenue at Telegraph Street and the Rockbottom Bridge; the bridge finally came down in fall 2001 after being closed for over 30 years. All of the surviving four-way signals have LED lenses for the red and the green lights.

Broad Avenue at North Frederick Street
Signal No. 1 on this list, located near the former Binghamton North High School, is suspended from two poles manufactured in the 1970s which have been recycled from a prior installation. The two signals flanking it are also from that era as well. This sort of installation has also been performed in Albany (where the signals are safety yellow). Photo taken Easter Sunday, 31 March 2002.

Broad Avenue at North Frederick Street (A Closeup)
Here is a closeup of the pagode-style light. Judging from its shape, it is evidently a Crouse-Hinds unit built in the 1940s or 1950s. Picture taken from the eastern side of the intersection. Sorry for the harsh lighting!
