I posted pictures of the Empire State Building’s surprise light show last night. Here are a couple of videos. The first one shows it in competition with the changing lights of Bank of America Tower’s spire. The second is a close-up of the top of the Empire State Building flashing the colors of the rainbow. The videos have been sped up by 2x for the sake of brevity.
The Empire State Building gave its brightly lit neighbors with colorful flashing spires — Bank of America Tower and 4 Times Square — a run for their money tonight, changing colors from red to blue to green to yellow, to hot pink, then it put on a little show where the the colors of the rainbow flashed. I saw it on half of the south side of the building, but it looks like it was on the west side (and I’m guessing on half of the north side as well). Perhaps this was a light test and is a taste of things to come on the skyline? Guess we’ll all have to stay tuned. Here are some pictures (video hopefully coming later!):

Lit up in Christmas colors of Red and Green alongside the spire light shows at Bank of America Tower and 4 Times Square, the Empire State Building was part of its own light show on 12/19/11. Multiple lights bounced up and down the south side of the building intermittently, then darted from side to side along the midtown NYC skyline. Finally, the light stopped at the top of the building and then shot upward through the spire. No idea where the lights were coming from (anyone know?) but it was pretty cool and unexpected to watch! Note: The grainy video (sorry!) was sped up 2x in the interest of brevity.
Incidentally, after months of relatively conservative Bank of America / 4 Times Square spire light shows where the light colors changed kind of slowly, as you can see in the video, they’re now getting back to the wacky flashier lights not seen since last fall / winter. Here’s what they looked like last year.
