The Empire State in Green and Blue

Empire State Bldg, NYC
Photo by myself in Bryant Park, in Midtown.

Monday night, the Empire State Building was all lit up in green and blue. This photo was taken in Bryant Park, about seven blocks north.

During the winter, there is a raised area for seating and an ice rink. People were out skating while 'Grease' was being shown on a giant movie screen.

The colors for the Empire State Building are scheduled well in advance, and the colors often have symbolic meaning. These are LED lights, so technically, the color selection is limitless.

According to the ESB website, Monday's green and blue symbolized 'the Committee Encouraging Corporate Philanthropy and International Corporate Philanthropy Day'.

Ha.

Lovely angle Kitty and oh so New York. It looked very cold...

Nice picture. Why anyone would sit in the cold on a table in a park is going beyond me.

Nice photo, the led-lights are endless I suppose, but the subjects to use them for are a bit beyond belief.

Very majestic. As I've said before, although I couldn't live there, there's only one NYC.

It’s like one giant mood-setter. Ha! Kidding aside, the Empire State Building is as big a symbol of New York as the Statue of Liberty. Using it to project certain messages or commemorate an event using LED lights adds to its character.
