“Stranger Things” Takes Over the Empire State Building

Things just got stranger at the Empire State Building …

On May 26, the Empire State Building shared a “Stranger Things” themed experience with New Yorkers at its iconic Observatory, that included a first-of-its-kind, dynamic light show; a special appearance from the “Stranger Things” cast; and a life-size Demogorgon photo opportunity for visitors on the building’s 86th Floor.

Fans gathered in Flatiron to watch a dynamic light show which transformed ESB into a portal to the Upside Down ahead of the “Stranger Things” season premiere. The display featured images of the beloved show’s principal characters, the feared Demogorgon, and the series’ new villain, Vecna.
