    The Many Lights of the Empire State Building

    NYC's most famous landmark likes to put on a pretty show.

    The Empire State Building changes the color of its lights on a near-daily basis to celebrate holidays and special events. On other nights it lights up midtown Manhattan in classic white; but its ever-changing tower — pink and red to celebrate Valentine's Day, red-white-blue to commemorate President's Day — has tourists and locals alike asking, "What's the special day?"

    At other times, the famous steeple keeps count, in a way: on the night of the 2012 election, dots glowed in blue and red on either side of the building's tower as votes poured in for Democrat Barack Obama (blue) and Republican Mitt Romney (red).

    Pictured here, the night of the 2012 Super Bowl, the building was lit up in red and gold to celebrate a San Francisco 49ers lead — before a win for the Baltimore Ravens had the tower glowing in purple and black.
