The skyline glowed blue just last week, and tonight it will shine red.
It’s part of the “All In NYC” campaign, from NYC & Company in collaboration with the New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC), to showcase the strength of NYC. Tonight, buildings all over the city will light up in red to “show their dedication—to New York City and to the hard work and collective spirit it has taken to see it through these challenging times. And it’s a reminder of the city’s endless possibilities—of the breadth of experiences it offers for the people who live here and the businesses that operate here.”
The Empire State Building will start at 6pm with a lighting ceremony, and then other other buildings will begin lighting at 7pm.
Participating include but are not limited to:
- The Vessel, Hudson Yards
- EDGE, Hudson Yards
- 30 Rockefeller Plaza
- Brooklyn Army Terminal
- Madison Square Garden
- Billboards in Times Square
- MetLife Building
- One World Trade Center
- One Bryant Park
- Bloomberg Tower
Let’s paint the town red ❤
From 8-9 this evening our tower shines red for the COTY @dkms_us gala in the fight against blood cancer. Red lights will continue for the rest of the night in honor of the @NYCEDC’s #AllInNYC Campaign. #ESBright
