Empire State Building and iHeart Media New York Launch The Ultimate Valentine's Day Contest

New York City (January 16, 2020) – The Empire State Building (ESB), in partnership with iHeartMedia New York today announced the launch of a national contest to provide one couple with the ‘Ultimate Valentine’s Day Date’ at the World’s Most Romantic Building, the Empire State Building. From January 20 through February 7, interested entrants can visit www.litefm.com, or listen to 106.7 LITE FM for a chance to win a trip to New York City and an all access tour to the Empire State Building.

The lucky couple will be whisked behind the scenes through our VIP entrance and into the Celebrity Green Room, where stars like BTS, Mariah Carey, and others have relaxed. Provided with a personal guide, the winners will skip all the lines on a private, curated tour of the iconic landmark, complete with insider information and fun facts. After exploring the immersive exhibits on the second and 80th floors and experiencing the floor-to-ceiling window views from the recently-opened 102nd Floor Observatory, the couple will then be escorted to their own private area on the world-famous 86th Floor Observatory. Once there, they will enjoy an exclusive three-course dining experience 1,050 feet above New York City, provided by STATE Grill and Bar.

Home to countless on-screen romances and real-life weddings and proposals, the Empire State Building has become synonymous with love. After 25 years of performing wedding ceremonies and vow renewals on Valentine’s Day, this year, the building will reinvent its tradition and offer the chance for two people, married or not, to celebrate their relationship with a memorable evening in the heart of New York City.


“Spending Valentine’s Day at the Empire State Building is the ultimate celebration of romance. We are excited to work with our longtime partner iHeartMedia to give an experience that Sleepless in Seattle made clear: The Empire State Building is the World’s Most Romantic Building,” said Jean-Yves Ghazi, President of the Observatory. “This year, as a continuation of our reimagined Observatory Guest Experience, we decided to open up the opportunity for anyone in love to have an unforgettable evening at the Empire State Building.”

Travel and hotel accommodations will be provided. For complete contest details and rules, please visit www.litefm.com.
