At 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, Halloween night, New York City's Empire State Building will light up with a Halloween-themed LED light show choreographed by famous lighting designer Marc Brickman to a spooky soundtrack on Clear Channel’s radio stations Z100 (100.3 FM) and KTU (103.5 FM).

As an added touch, Empire State Realty Trust, Inc. (ESRT), owner of the Empire State Building, has installed lights for the first time on the iconic skyscraper’s antenna.
ESRT says that the addition of the new antenna LED (light emitting diode) lights will offer “more than 200 feet of new lighting capabilities.” With the recent switchover to LEDs, the building is capable of light shows featuring 16 million colors.

The Halloween-inspired hits for the light show include:

    “This Is Halloween”
    “Monster Mash”
    “Somebody’s Watching Me”
Best viewing locations in Brooklyn include anyplace with a view of the Empire State Building, including the Brooklyn Bridge and the Williamsburg Waterfront.

Those unable to view the live show can watch the official high-resolution video one hour after the event on the Empire State Building’s YouTube page via:
