Celebrate Earth Hour on Saturday

If you’re looking out your window or gazing up from the promenade towards Manhattan on Saturday night, you’ll notice that the Empire State Building is black. That’s because between 8:30 and 9:30 pm, the iconic building will go black — that is, no lights — to celebrate “Earth Hour” as part of the World Wildlife Fund’s global initiative to turn lights out and “make a global statement about climate change.”

Other global landmarks that will go out include the Eiffel Tower in Paris, the Las Vegas Strip, and the Sears Tower in Chicago.

More information about the hour is available here, and information about the Empire State Building’s lighting schedule is here.
