New York, NY, November 8, 2016 -- CNN will join forces Tuesday evening with the Empire State Building to display to millions of New Yorkers and the network’s viewers in the United States and around the world the action taking place on social media surrounding the election. 


CNN, which will exclusively shoot footage from the 86th Floor Observatory and the rooftop of a neighboring building, will air not only live commentary from ESB, but also live images of the illuminated tower as the evening’s results progress, and as more and more people across the city and country participate. 


 When CNN projects a winner of the presidential election, the tower lights of the Empire State Building will light up with the president elect’s face.    


Tune in to CNN’s “Election Night in America” coverage beginning at 6 p.m. ET, or join the conversation on Twitter by following #CNNElections and @EmpireStateBldg.
