Empire State Building to be lit in Red and White to Celebrate Latvia’s Participation in London

On Tuesday, August 7, 2012, the Empire State Building in New York, U.S. will shine its iconic tower lights in red and white on the north side of the building to honour Latvia’s participation in the London Summer Olympic Games 2012.

The Empire State Building will celebrate nations competing in London by illuminating each of the four sides of its famed tower lights – north, south, east and west – in the colours of participating countries’ flags.

Soaring 1,454 feet above Midtown Manhattan from base to antenna, the Empire State Building is the “World’s Most Famous Office Building.” With new investments in infrastructure, public areas and amenities, the Empire State Building has attracted first-rate tenants in a diverse array of industries from around the world.

The skyscraper’s robust broadcasting technology supports all major television and FM radio stations in the New York metropolitan market. The Empire State Building was named America’s favourite building in a poll conducted by the American Institute of Architects. The Empire State Building Observatory is one of the world’s most beloved attractions and is the region’s #1 tourist destination.
