Sure it’s a little bit Vegas, but it’s also fun, of course, we’re talking about the newly launched Empire State Building light show. Instead of just changing colors, now the building’s cloud-skimming lights can move, shimmy, and cross-fade—dare we say, flashy? For its big debut earlier this week that nearly outshined the Rockefeller tree, the new Philips Color Kinetic lighting system cranked up “Empire State of Mind” with a show synced to Alicia Keys’ songs. Said the local singer, “The Empire State Building has always been a symbol of what’s possible in New York. And all the dreams that can come true in this city that never sleeps.” Cheers to one more reason to stay up late!
