The DIRECTV blimp paid NYC another visit over the weekend where it was here to float over the NY Mets’ game at Citi Field.  Below it’s flying by the Chrysler Building and below the jump, it’s passing the Met Life Building….

Lights Shut off for Earth Hour 2011 in New York City

Posted by LG On March - 26 - 2011

Earth Hour, the  annual worldwide event created by the WWF (World Wide Fund for Nature) that takes a stand against climate change, occurred from 8:30-9:30pm on Saturday March 26.  I filmed New York City skyline as the lights turned off.

First the Chrysler Building lights went out.  30 Rock was next, (although the famous GE sign lights never went off).  4 Times Square and Bank of America Tower spires were next.  B of A’s crown followed.  Then the Empire State Building.  The rows of B of A’s crown took around a minute to fully turn off.

This video of the Bank of America Tower (One Bryant Park) light show was taken shortly after the lights went on just after 4:30pm and just before the sunset, which really beautifully shows off some of the angles of the building. The Conde Nast spire isn’t lit up initially but came on when it was a bit darker, as seen toward the end.
