The Many Faces of the Empire State Building

I think this can be a good idea for a photo thread. The ESB changes colors a lot depending on a special event, holiday, some global event, elections, and so on, and I think it would be cool to document some of the changes. Either via photos of others or your own.

I guess I’ll start.

For the Month of March:

St. Patrick’s Day:

American Red Cross Month:

Easter Weekend:

well this has been low-key. Apparently there’s a contest for what the lighting will be like on the ESB’s 85th anniversary.

Option 5 looks amazing. Its very “Gotham” like. Has a Dark Night vibe to it.

this October will mark 5 years since they began to use LEDs to light the broadcast antenna above the mooring spire. Time flies. I’m glad I favorited this video on youtube as its now unlisted.
