The Celebrity Cafe – The Empire State Building put on a light show for New Yorkers to enjoy, synchronized to Alicia Keys’ “Girl on Fire” and “Empire State of Mind.” The LED light show was the first since the election, when the building first showed what the system could do, giving real time results.
According to Mashable, the system was created by Philips Color Kinetics and started at 9pm Monday night. The display was synchronized with Clear Channel-owned radio stations like Z100, 103.5 KTU and 106.7 Lite FM, which all played the songs at the same time.
Yet another reason why New York City is the greatest city on Earth. How Alicia Keys snaked her way into this Empire State Building light show gig is beyond me, but nonetheless an amazing feat. Check out the video and enjoy the power of technology. As long as every building doesn’t get these bulbs essentially turning NYC into Las Vegas, then we’ll be fine. This will be awesome for New Year’s Eve and 4th of July. Anyway, enjoy the clip
