Empire State Building lit up with red, white lights to honor emergency workers

NEW YORK (WSVN) — The Empire State Building was lit up in honor of the emergency workers on the front lines of the coronavirus pandemic.

The building’s signature white lights were replaced with red lights and a white and red siren light to honor all those in the fight against COVID-19.

Video of the moment was captured by Adrian Kubicki, Monday evening.

At 9 p.m., there was also a music-to-light show synced to New York’s iconic theme song, “Empire State of Mind” by Alicia Keys.

According to a tweet from the account for the building, the building will replace the traditional white lights with the “heartbeat of America,” throughout the pandemic.
