In October, the Empire State Building debuted its new tower antenna LED lights with a fun Halloween light show on the majestic skyscraper. Last night, the building kicked off the first of five holiday light shows. Here's what it looked like:
The remaining shows start at 7 p.m. and run from tonight through Christmas Eve, December 24th. According to a press release, "Viewers will have the rare opportunity to help select ESB's lights for Christmas Eve. The ESB Holiday Light Show Team will review YouTube views, iHeartRadio posts, Facebook comments, Tweets, and other social media comments to select the Christmas Eve performance, again with Lite fm on Christmas Eve at 7 p.m. EST."
"Millions of New Yorkers and more than one million people worldwide viewed the last Empire State Realty Trust and Clear Channel light show on Halloween," Anthony E. Malkin, Chairman, President and CEO of Empire State Realty Trust, said. "The Clear Channel and Empire State Realty Trust team looks forward to the first year of what we hope will be an annual holiday treat for revelers around the world. ESRT and Clear Channel continue to collaborate on these music-to-light show spectaculars to create anticipated, annual memories for major holidays such as Christmas, Halloween and the Fourth of July. Our light shows are becoming a beloved tradition, something to share for years to come."
The Empire State Realty Trust says, "Best light show public viewing locations include, but are not limited to, the Brooklyn Bridge, Bryant Park, The Highline, Hoboken/Jersey City Waterfront, Hudson River Esplanade, Long Island City, Madison Square Park, Tribeca Park, Union Square, Jackson Square, and the Williamsburg Waterfront."
