I walk pass the building everyday to and from work and as I left work early last night I didn't notice (mainly because I don't look up like a tourist). Good thing today I'm bringing a bunch of out-of-state friends to see the tree, go skating and manga at Carmine's up on 91st, I will point it out.

I should've read the article instead of subby's headline. It's a light show.

I didn't see the lights move on Thursday when I walked past. Whoopdie doo.

You can't have a spectacular Christmas light show without Trans-Siberian Orchestra!

Thanks for the link. Maybe I'll watch it later when I'm on an approved device. Mobile device restrictions are stupid.

Gulf Tower has been doing all that and more for decades.

Tells the weather.  Also has something to do with Regina, or so I'm told.

February 5th, I'm running the stairway of the ESB all the way to the first observation deck for a fund raiser. Hope they leave the lights on.....and they have oxygen. I'll need it.

It's a sign that that widower from Seattle should marry that lovely woman from Baltimore.

What other possible explanation is there?

Truth be told. It's been one of my favorite places in town to go when you have a lot of people to entertain. The food is just that good!!!
