The Empire State Building will light up during the solar eclipse on Monday afternoon

As the city that never sleeps, NYC is never truly dark—even during a solar eclipse.

On Monday, a partial solar eclipse will be visible in New York at 2:44pm. As the country darkens in the middle of the afternoon, the Empire State Building will shine bright white as a way to bring a modicum of balance to our tumultuous lives.

It’s not the first light show the skyscraper’s had (there have been rainbows, fireworks and a fashion show), but it is one of the rare occurrences to see an illuminated skyline smack-dab in the middle of the afternoon. NYC is really going all out for this eclipse.
