Embossed lenses

German Street and Exchange Avenue

Most of Herkimer’s signals are located on NYS Route 5 and are maintained by the New York State Department of Transportation. They are hardly newsworthy.

But this intersection is another story. These city signals are classic Crouse-Hinds Art Deco signals that have, among other things, some embossed lenses (not all are). Click on the picture to the right, and you will see what we mean when you look at the green lens. Photos taken 4 July 2002.
