NYC’s iconic Empire State Building has glittered in pretty much every color you could imagine at this point. Whether it’s an NYC sports team winning a game, a holiday, or in honor of an important person, the ESB stays being the focal point of NYC.
And with over 4 million visitors from around the globe visiting this iconic landmark each year, New Yorkers and tourists alike are dazzled time and time again by the building’s spectacular display of lights–even if we’re not entirely sure what the lights represent.
But a new ESB text message feature is taking the guessing game out of the significance of the building’s lights.
A simple text of the word “CONNECT” to 274-16 delivers a photo and reason for the building’s lights in real time, ensuring tourists stay informed about the ever-changing aesthetics of the city’s most recognizable landmark, allowing them to feel more connected to the city us New Yorkers call home.
The new ESB text message feature also makes it easy for those who wish to capture photos and videos of the building illuminating the sky–Instagram here we come!
The Empire State Building lights have been capturing the world’s imagination for decades. A defining feature of the New York City skyline since 1976, the building is capable of displaying more than 16 million colors–to be honest, we didn’t even know that many colors existed.
And now you can marvel at the building and be a total expert on the significance behind its light displays, because a true New Yorker knows allll the ins and outs of the city!
