Monday, September 11th, 2023 marks the 22nd anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, and beginning at sunset you’ll be able to look up at the iconic building and see the Empire State Building light up the sky.
The ESB’s tower lights have traditionally lit up in various colors to recognize special occasions, moments, and organizations since 1976. It most recently glittered red, white and blue for Labor Day weekend.
Most years since the 2001 tragedy, it has been lit in red, white, in blue. However, for the past few years it’s been lighting up blue, and will join over 30 different landmarks and buildings around New York doing the same for the annual 9/11 Memorial memorial display, “Tribute in Light.” The Tribute in Light display beams two lights up straight into the sky near Ground Zero, where the Twin Towers would have stood.
The Empire State Building lights will be visible throughout the city from sunset Monday night until dawn on Tuesday morning.
