Thanksgiving sees many New Yorkers leave and many visitors arrive. This year the good people at the Empire State Building have a little something planned for those who are sticking around this year.
In case avoiding family get-togethers, the Macy’s parade, and a slew of seasonal activities weren’t enough to keep you in NYC for Thanksgiving, you can add another thing to the list.
For Thanksgiving on Thursday, and again on Friday, the iconic tower on Fifth Avenue will be eliminated with seasonal fall lights. Empire State Building’s autumnal light show is set to illuminate the skies with the warm hues of reds and oranges that have been absent from our trees. Thanks, global warming.

It’s not the first time this year The Empire State Building has lit up to commemorate things this year, the eclipse, gay pride, easter, Fourth of July, Halloween and so on.
The ESB itself will stay open through the holiday weekend (from 8 am to 2 am). So if you haven’t had a chance to take in the view yet, head over on Thanksgiving and enjoy it practically free from tourists.
