The Empire State Building was lit up in Halloween colors as 15,000 channels of computer-controlled LED lights cast changing colors on the skyscraper from its 72nd floor all the way to the top of its spire, the Associated Press notes.

The colorful glow from the light show could be see for miles. The light show was synched with music broadcast on local radio stations[3], MyFoxNY notes.

Last night’s light show was timed to coincide with the popular Halloween Parade in Manhattan’s Greenwich Village.

Earlier this year, the Empire State Building also put on a light show during Fourth of July festivities, using LED lights installed last year[4].

Here are some more stories from Halloween 2013:
