Light Show Returns to 290 Mulberry
290 Mulberry Street might be in a state of financial flux (the project lender is attempting to foreclose and sell), but that’s not stopping the light show from returning to the vacant development. Late last week, after an extended period of darkness, the lights began flashing anew. This time, however, only the third and fourth floors are interchangeably illuminated. And with a more limited color scheme.

As NYC the Blog pointed out, the 290 Mulberry light show is actually an art project dubbed Your Lights Are on But You’re Not Home. Cardinal Investments, the developer behind the condo building, is reportedly the sponsor.
UPDATE: Here is an email response from the Arts Corporation regarding the resurgence of the light show, as sent to us by a reader.
Currently we are testing some new lighting scenarios in anticipation of expanding the work through the end of this year. Hopefully we will have something larger up and running soon. And yes, the title is a direct reference to Robert Palmer.
