New York red and gold for Chinese New YearCelebrating Chinese Lunar New Year that starts on January 28, the top of the Empire State Building in Midtown Manhattan, New York, will shine in red and gold at sunset Thursday and Friday.

 

The international icon of the New York skyline, the Building’s tower lights will “shine in a special Chinese Lunar New Year design entitled ‘universal celebration’,” said John B. Kessler, President and Chief Operating Officer of the Empire State Realty Trust, at a lighting ceremony with Chinese Consul General Zhang Qiyue, in the lobby on the Fifth Avenue Thursday morning.

 

This year’s theme of “universal celebration” is well chosen, Zhang said, as the Spring Festival is now an important holiday for both Chinese, Asians and Americans.

 

According to its lighting calendar, the Building will be lit in red and gold at sunset Thursday and Friday, and change every 60 seconds until the next morning.

 

The lights were created by world renown lighting designer Marc Brickman in collaboration with China Central Academy of Fine arts in a salute to the Year of the Rooster which represents punctuality.
