Empire State Building Pulsates As Ambulance Siren

NBC News reports:

The Empire State Building has turned all the colors of the rainbow for many occasions but when it turned into a blaring red beacon on Monday night, the message was clear: New York is under the state of emergency.

The building’s owner, Empire State Realty Trust, says the tower of the iconic New York City landmark will turn red each night and spin to pay tribute to all the heroes on the frontline of the coronavirus epidemic.

Some say the tribute to first responders and health care workers is a nice gesture and some found giant emergency signal eerie. Others had mixed feelings, as one person puts it: “Can’t decide if the ‘Red Alert’ is gorgeous or terrifying.”
