Funny, I always thought ESB was male and Chrysler was the female. But according to Empire State on facebook, the green was in fact for earth day.

Although no longer the tallest its still the King.

No matter where this tower ranks in height, it is still the mother of all skyscrapers and the best one ever built!

True, but at least it has been eclipsed again by a worthy successor. At least it can retire in peace once again.

It isn't often that a building is the tallest building in the city at 2 different times.

Empire state building always has and all will always be king of all skyscrapers.

I didn't mean the frames, I meant at the upper most floors the windows are bordered up in a red color.

Bathed in New Lights, Empire State Building Will Star in More Vivid Show

When redesigning the exterior lighting for one of the world’s best-known buildings, how should you proceed? With much greater energy efficiency, a significantly wider palette of more intense colors and a lot of panache.

That is the tack that the owners of the Empire State Building are taking with their decision to replace its 400 existing standard lamps — technology that was introduced to coincide with the 1976 bicentennial — with 1,200 newly designed fixtures using the latest LED technology.

Because the colors of each LED fixture can be manipulated independently and instantaneously via computer, lighting effects — including rainbows, ripples, cross-fades and burst effects — can be created that appear to be animated, continuously moving and changing.

“We’ll have some real fun with our ability to manipulate the new lights,” said Anthony E. Malkin, president of Malkin Holdings, an affiliate of the entity that owns the building. The announcement on the new lighting is scheduled to be made on Wednesday.

Empire St. plans new hues

Just a week after being eclipsed by the World Trade Center — again — the Empire State Building is fighting back. The owners of the ESB — no longer the city’s tallest building, thanks to the sky-high development at the new WTC — are unveiling a newly designed LED system that will allow them to light the sky like never before, officials said. The new technology will let them to create rainbows, bursts, ripples and other special effects — and choose from scores more colors, they said.

But the ESB’s owners denied any competition with the WTC, which was the city’s tallest structure for years before 9/11. “We are quite secure as the focal point of the Manhattan skyline,” said Anthony Malkin, president of the entity that owns the building.

Plans call for replacing the existing 400 standard bulbs with 68,000 quarter-sized LED lights. It will take a few million dollars to install the new lights, Malkin said, but the energy savings — and the new look — will be worth it.

The project should be completed by September.

Hey, great articles, thanks for posting. :tup:

Fascinating to see LEDS in the mast.

MolsonExport May 14, 2012 8:52 PM

when did ESB officially become 103 floors, rather than the oft-documented 102?

See here f.e.: http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/show...&postcount=482

There are several articles about 103rd floor (which is not open to the public btw) in this very thread...

The mighty Empire State building may not be the tallest in New York City but it sure looks so beautiful in blue and white!!
