Sunnyside Shines, the local business improvement group, said late December that it had plans to permanently affix lights to the Sunnyside Arch.
Yesterday, workers were out in the cold wind doing just that: attaching lights to the Arch. The workers said the work should be completed by Friday and then Con Ed will come in to sign off on it.
Sunnyside Shines will have the ability to light the Arch whenever it chooses and whatever color it deems appropriate to an occasion.
Historically, the Arch has had lighting; however, in recent years the lights have been out.
