The first time I noticed the synchronized lighting was on Ocean Parkway in Brooklyn, which is a two-way boulevard. I was a young kid visiting family (25-30 years ago?). So I don't think it's impossible on a two-way street; nor is it a recent technological improvement. But I still won't pretend to be an expert.

On one hand, the city tends to be pretty bad with this sort of shit. On the other hand, if it was really something that could be accomplished by the switch of a button, I'd have to think it would have been done decades ago. I really don't know the complexity of it. Right now, it's just another one of those annoying "NY does it better" tropes. At least in my brain.
