Hey Nerds! Stranger Things 4 is @ ESB!

Did you see the “Stranger Things” themed light show?! The first-of-its-kind, dynamic lighting brought the Empire State Building into the Upside Down, an alternate dimension depicted in the show. The cast of the hit Netflix series visited the Observatory to flip the famous switch in a lighting ceremony to celebrate the show’s takeover of the building. Now through July, guests have the opportunity to take pictures in our Stranger Things custom photo corner! Don’t miss the chance to pose with a Demogorgon, mouth breathers!
