Empire State Realty Trust and Clear Channel Media and Entertainment “Treat” New York City and the World to the “Sights and Sounds” of Halloween
With One-of-a-Kind Light and Music Show
ANTENNA REVEAL: As a special surprise and gift to New York City and the world, Empire State Realty Trust, Inc. (NYSE: ESRT) has installed for the first time lights to the Empire State Building’s antenna—the highest structure on the building. These custom LED lights can be seen for miles in every direction. On Halloween night, the antenna LEDs will be unveiled for the first-time ever, and will become part of the Empire State Building’s light shows and iconic tower lightings, further enhancing and redefining the New York City skyline.
Thursday, October 31, 2013, at 8:30 p.m. EST, ESRT and Clear Channel Media and Entertainment will give New York City a Halloween-themed LED light show choreographed by internationally-acclaimed lighting designer Marc Brickman to a Halloween-inspired soundtrack on Clear Channel’s powerhouse radio stations Z100 (100.3 FM) and KTU (103.5 FM).
