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 31. Here’s my film of the midtown Manhattan skyline filmed from the Union Square area.
First the lights to 30 Rockefeller Center went off (except for the GE sign) just after the video starts. Around 45 seconds later the Empire State Building went dark. Next you’ll see the Chrysler Building lights start to go off at around the 1:04 mark in the video and go dark several seconds later (although this actually happened around 2 1/2 minutes after the Empire State Building, and that footage was removed because you would have been seriously bored and probably long gone!).
