ESB Tribute St. Judy Hospital by Ceva321, on Flickr

iv seen the videos of the lights synchronized with the music and was wondering if it does some of the new effects like the flashing lights on the spire, the spinning lights on the observation deck, and the rippling effect of the lights on the face of the building, every night but in just one color? and if not than what events would these effects be used for?

That was a special show. No flashing or spinning lights since that show. I would guess it's for very special occasions

No kidding. It looks brand new, and the ESB looks insane with the entire top lit up like that.

I did dislike that Alicia Keys light show though. A little spastic for my tastes.

"Tonight, in honor of 121212, The Concert for Sandy Relief to benefit the Robin Hood Foundation Relief Fund, our lights will shine in Robin Hood’s green, while our mast, buttresses and halo spin in red and white as a reminder of the need for emergency assistance for those whose lives and livelihoods remain shattered by the aftermath of the storm. Learn more about the concert and the cause here: http://www.121212concert.org/
So is this the "lite" version of the LED show? The entire mast, buttresses, and halo SPINNING in red and white sounds like something animated?

Yes "Thank You" Carlos once again friend for giving us such great pictures! "Love the King of All Buildings"

Esb
 
Thank you Carlos for these awesome (crisp!) shots of the ESB.

I'm honored after busting my ass in the consultant industry for years that I now get to work in this amazing Icon.

Every morning I walk in and hear the security guards bellow out, "Welcome to the Empire State Building, Good morning."..... it never stops amazing me.

The perfect floors, the gold ceilings, the art deco floor mats in the elevators. A million little motivators to work hard and reminders of the hard work I've already put in and the many years of hard work I can only hope I will be lucky enough to put in .... in the years to come...... in this incredible, very, very special Icon. I am very very lucky to see, feel and breath in this building each day..... she's a beauty.

My dentist is on the 21st floor of a Union Square Art Deco gem, so I enjoy a version of that here, with a wrap around east to south view. I like to look at it while he's cleaning, not drilling, my teeth. :yes:

Thanks for your consistent photos of ESB, 1 WTC, 4 WTC, and life in NYC during the year Carlos. I really appreciate seeing it out here in baby Manhattan.

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and wishing you all the best for the New Year!
