The Empire State Building will light up with festive holiday colors in its first ever Christmas light and music show.
Beginning Friday, the iconic building will light up for a show synchronized with holiday hits and classics on 106.7 Lite fm.
The shows will air at 7 p.m. through Christmas Eve.
The best spots to view the show are Brooklyn Bridge, Bryant Park, The Highline, Hoboken/Jersey City Waterfront, Hudson River Esplanade, Long Island City, Madison Square Park, Tribeca Park, Union Square, Jackson Square, and the Williamsburg Waterfront.
If you can't get a good view of the spectacle, a video will be posted immediately following the show on the building's YouTube. (Here's the July 4th show and the Halloween show.)
For the Christmas Eve show, the building will review comments from previous viewings on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, iHeartRadio posts and other social media to select arrange the final performance.
