Empire State in tye dye. <3

Should be more crazy like that, more often. And they should have LED lights installed already, I know they wanted to by 2009, don't think that happened.

Would be nice seeing it change different colors on some nights every few minutes.

I hate Empire State in that colour scheme. New York looks great with a sombre tone, whereas Hong Kong is usually the one that goes wacky with the colours.

That first pic by Dino is superb!

Great pic, but that's what I dislike about the New York skyline (that angle in particular).

Not to criticize NYC's skyline and some weak angles of it...but does Chicago's skyline have any weak angles? I can't think of any, I think it shines no matter how to look at it
