One of New York's most iconic landmarks has launched a new illumination feature that takes a page out of the Eiffel Tower's playbook.
Over the weekend, New York's Empire State Building, which soars 1,454 feet above Midtown Manhattan, erupted in a sparkle of twinkle lights, showing off a new regular feature: For five minutes, on the hour, every hour, the building will light up between sunset and 2 am ET.
