I drove 8 Mile home today and man those lights are bright. Plus like ever other business along 8 Mile has bright white flood lights. It felt like daytime. I don't know how much this will reduce crime, but certainly anyone out on the street at night can be easily spotted.

Interesting satellite photo. Eastpointe also has completely changed over to LEDs, yet the satellite pictures show it to be darker than Detroit and surrounding areas. Maybe we have less total lights overall? More trees? Different style lights?

Less lights per street.

Even on the ground... the Wayne and Washtinaw Co at I-94 has almost no difference. The subdivisions spill over almost seamlessly from west Wayne Co into Ypsi on I-94. Willow Run airport and the landfill is the only reasons why there's not more houses between the two.

But what's funny is on that pic you can see Port Huron and Lapeer which both are considered part of Metro Detroit but have quite a but have alot more darkness between them and Detroit then Ann Arbor/Ypsi and Detroit.

I agree, at my first quick initial glimpse of the picture I thought that Jackson was Ann Arbor because I expected their to be a bit more separation.

I remember the first time I drove Telegraph South past 8 Mile following the LEDs. It was summer, and you'd swear you just crossed into a nicer area. Very powerful effect, and glad Detroit put forth the effort.
