Empire State Building's Blue Light Special
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Good morning, I'm Steve Inskeep. The tallest building in New York City is often the scene of an elegant light show. The outside of the Empire State Building is lit up in red and green at Christmas time and green for St. Patrick's Day. This week, it's been lit up like an electoral map: half red, half blue. Barack Obama's victory means his side gets the whole display now. So tonight that national symbol finished during the Great Depression will be lit up in blue alone. It's Morning Edition.
