Sunday, September 11th, 2022 marks the 21st 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.
Most years since the 2001 tragedy, it has been lit in red, white, in blue. However, for the past two 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 Sunday night until dawn on Monday morning.
