Empire State Building Lights Up With Olympic Flag Colors

empire state buildingHere's to the Olympics! New York's famed Empire State Building is honoring nations competing in London by shining its world-famous tower lights in different colors each night to match the country's flags. Each of the tower's four sides will be illuminated in different colors throughout the night for each night through August 12.

This marks the second time ESB has split the tower's sides with four separate countries' lights in its history. The building has been lit with colored lights since 1976.

The lighting starts this Thursday with the North and South side representing the USA and the East and West sides representing Great Britain. For a full schedule, you can visit the Empire State Building's website.
