Pardon us for asking, but wasn’t Brooklyn Borough Hall supposed to go dark for Earth Hour?

The photo was taken at 8:45, and at 9:00, nothing had changed.  The Brooklyn Bridge, however, did what it was supposed to do.

    “Lower Manhattan was pretty well dimmed…EXCEPT for the Woolworth Building (boo!) which stood out like a sore thumb with all lights blazing…do you know of an e-mail address for the building owners? I would e-mail them!”

    The Woolworth Building is owned by the Witkoff Group; if you wish to register your complaint with them as well as with Marty, they can be contacted at

    I turned my Christmas lights back on at 8:30 to protest this sham of global warming. I wish people would take more time to really understand the cycles of weather over the BILLIONS of years this planet has endured.

    I have to admit I did not get the symbolism of a moment of darkenss. I mean in mourning if someone dies perhaps, to express sadness and grief, but who’s mourning? There are those I’m sure who would like to see out light go out permanently and to see us return to the darkness and dimness of centuries past. Count me out.
