In honor of those who died in the 9/11 attacks, the Empire State Building tower lights will be lit up in blue colors tonight.
Saturday, September 11th, 2021 marks the 20th 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, this year—same as last year—it will join over 40 different landmarks and buildings around New York lighting in blue 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 Saturday night until dawn on Sunday morning.
