Out of Place Traffic Light

18th Street north of KOn 18th street, between K and L, there is a streetlight that has never made sense to me. Its sole purpose is to stop traffic mid-block and let cars out of a parking garage.

An architect friend of mine has indicated that it was installed by the builder illegally, but I have no way of verifying that. I do think its odd that its tied into the timing of the other lights, and can’t think of another instance in the City where a commercial building’s parking garage exit gets its own traffic light.18th-street-streetlight1
