- Empire State Building's Lights Synchronized to First-Ever Fireworks Display

For the first time in the history of New York City, fireworks were launched 
from the Empire State Building's 72nd and 103rd floors, and from its famed 86th 
Floor Observation Deck. Its lights put on a synchronized display in the only 
live component of NBC's broadcast of the 44th Annual Macy's July 4th 
Fireworks(R) Spectacular. The Heart of New York City, and the international 
icon of the city so nice they named it twice, put on an unprecedented display 
to Frank Sinatra's immortal New York, New York.  


The Building's music-to-light show was designed by world-renowned lighting 
designer Marc Brickman and his team at Tactical Manoeuvre, executed flawlessly 
under a clear night sky. The smoke from the fireworks accented the special 
light show that is now available on the Empire State Building's YouTube ( 
) channel.

"We are the Heart of New York City, the greatest city in the world.  Over this 
July 4th, we join Macy's and bring joy to our reawakening home as we continue
