NEW YORK (AP) — Earlier this week, a switch was flipped at the Empire State Building, turning on its dancing new LED lights. They burst from the skyscraper, synchronized with R&B star Alicia Keys singing "Empire State of Mind" on radio.
But the weathered old floodlights haven't been discarded or forgotten.
They fill a vacant space on the building's 72nd floor. What will be done with them is a secret — for now.
The LED system has more than 16 million color possibilities, in digital combinations of ripples, sparkles, sweeps and strobes.
