It’s very nitpicky but those utilitarian grey streetlights all over providence are hideous -_-

They don't have those types of lights in the more historically significant sections of the city such as the East Side neighborhood by Brown just a few blocks from downtown.

Those types of lights are also not along Westminster Street which was the old downtown retail center:

They are also not along Memorial Blvd which was only created 30 years ago when the rivers were redirected and surrounded by a liner park.

WHEREAS: Providence's patron literary saint, despite his appalling racism, remains HP Lovecraft; and,
WHEREAS: HP Lovecraft's outstanding contribution to the modern horror universe was his popularization of all things tentacle-y;
THEREFORE: it is decreed that all Providence light poles shall from here on, in homage to Lovecraft's truly *monstrous* genius, sprout tentacle-y appendages from which shall be suspended said light poles' lights.

Signed, Cthulhu
[who knows a thing or two about that which is hideous]

Agreed I’ve always disliked those lights. Something more stylized like these In the DC Navy Yard which are inexpensive to replicate would be ideal (both examples).

For Providence overall I’d probably lean to the second option — the black simpler streetlights as to fade in.
