Keys to Lighting the Empire State Building

One of the more interesting aspects of the Empire State Building's new gold rated LEED retrofit is that they have installed a complex new LED lighting system that can be used for light shows.  Alicia Keys is kicking off the light show tonight.  I could see some of the LED show way off in the distance tonight (I can see the very tip top of the Empire State Building from my house).  I am sure there will be lots of Youtube videos of the show available tomorrow.  I can't wait to see them.

LED lighting uses a fraction of energy that compact fluorescent bulbs use and they are much longer lasting.  So congratulations to the Empire State Building for having fun with with green lighting and pushing forward the uses of green technology.  Hopefully these lights will inspire.

Update:  a video of the light show is below:
