Lehn's Court Gets New Lighting, Bank Street Slated Next

New European-style cafe lighting is seen along Lehn's
Court, just off Centre Square in Downtown Easton. A
dedication ceremony is set for the little lights this Sunday.
The Easton Main Street Initiative (EMSI) announced today that the first of three planned new Downtown lighting installation projects has been completed. Lehn's Court, just off Centre Square, has had "European-style café lighting" added along the alleyway.

Main Street next plans to update lighting along North and South Bank Street, the organization said in a media release. That work is expected to begin later this year.

The projects are being funded by EMSI, a grant from the Lehigh Valley Chamber Foundation, and by Rich Rosati, owner of 1 Lehn’s Court who is expected to soon open a restaurant featuring coal fired pizza and pub at that location, the former Eddie G's bar, which closed this spring.

The cost of the project was not disclosed.

 A dedication ceremony will be held this Sunday, Sept. 8 at 5:30 p.m. outside of Rivals Sports Bar & Nightclub. Rivals will be hosting an outdoor concert and football kickoff patio party with live music by Brian Kirk & The Jirks directly afterwards.

A product of Easton Main Street Initiative’s design committee work, "the projects spotlight Downtown Easton’s fantastic retail and restaurants and also adds a lighting element for evening hours" as well as increasing walkability through the downtown, EMSI said. The organization added it has received "tremendous support" for the project from business and property owners, as well as from the City of Easton.
