This is another great aspect of the great inventor Edison. You need 1 of the assistants to let you in to view.

Since, we were in the area, how could we not! Went at night to see it light up. Basically like any picture you see but, in person was fun. They also had a light bulb fixture (not lit up) across the street.

I think it will be a nice sight too see when it's done, which is supposed to be very soon. Check in advance if you're making a special trip over just to see it.
