A defining feature of the New York City skyline since 1976, the Empire State Building lights have captured the world’s imagination for decades. We maintain a tradition of changing the color of the lights to recognize important occasions, holidays, and organizations throughout the year.

Since 2012, the building has used a state-of-the-art LED lighting system, capable of displaying more than 16 million colors. Visit our Youtube Channel to view some of our previous shows or click the link below to find out how you can become a lighting partner.
