New Yorkers might not be able to see Santa in the night sky this Christmas, but the Empire State Building will be treating us to something just as nice – their first-ever LED Christmas light show. For four nights starting on December 20th, the energy-efficient lights of the ESB will glow and flash rhythmically to classic and modern holiday music playing on Clear Channel New York’s Christmas radio station, 106.7 Lite FM. Read on to see how you can catch the shows!
Empire State Realty Trust and Clear Channel Media and Entertainment partnered together to bring the nightly Christmas shows to fruition. The action is set to begin at 7PM each night from December 20th to December 23rd. Residents of the city or out of towners unable to see the live shows in person can catch them on the ESB’s YouTube page, where videos will be posted each night.
Previously, the Empire State Building has hosted shows for Halloween, the Fourth of July, and even an LED-studded celebration set to the tune of Alicia Keys’ “Girl on Fire.” Since installing its energy-efficient LED lights, the Empire State Building saved $4.7 million in energy savings in just the first two years.
