Empire State Building getting LED makeover
NEW YORK (WABC) -- It might not be the tallest building in New York City anymore, but the Empire State Building will still have a world-class light show.
The old lights atop the tower reportedly are going to be replaced with 1,200 high-efficiency LED lights.
The switch will cost $6 million, but the energy savings will pay for the new lights in just six years.
The new lights should last six times longer.
