What is this??

This strange equipment in a neighborhood. With the grayish color, I thought telephone equipment, but I've never seen any with what looks like an A/C unit. And there's that HID light fixture on the side!

It's an air conditioner for an underground vault for telephone equipment.

Looks like some sort of HVAC equipment for what I don't know. Perhaps a secret underground bunker for the end of the world, which in my opinion is not far off with COVID-19 and now rioters and protests going on now. The world has gone crazy in 2020.

Oops I just saw the comment by Wireman.

I was right about the HVAC part but not the other part.

I have never seen an underground vault for telecommunications equipment before.

In Connecticut and the surrounding states (probably not New York though as their infrastructure is mostly underground in the city parts at-least) that equipment is mounted in big metal cabinets that look much like traffic signal controller cabinets or for the smaller stuff mounted in a box on the wooden power poles (that also carry phone & cable lines the high voltage primary's are at the top of the poles cross-arms). Cool that is has an HID tallpak on it but it looks like a target for vandals though.

Interesting.

Good quality things are awesome. Cheaply made things are not.

Collector of lights and anything else that interests me as long as I have space for that particular thing!

I laughed for like a whole minute when I saw the wallpack mounted a foot off the ground. That's just stupid.

Please check out my newly-updated website! McCann Lighting Company is where my street light collection is displayed in detail.

There are special computers that actually generate telephone signals as well as electronic exchange switches that can take the place of one central office located in those vaults. All of that equipment creates a lot of heat in those confined spaces. The wallpack is a low wattage fixture just to light the entrance to the vault for repair crews at night.
