Lights Out: NYC Landmarks Gong Green Tonight


New York City's landmark buildings and landmarks around the world will turn their lights off tonight to help stop climate change.

Beginning at 8:30 p.m., the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building, Times Square billboards and the decorative light necklaces on East River bridges will shut off their lights for an hour as part of a global initiative called Lights Out Action For Climate Change.

About 100 countries are participating in the World Wildlife Fund event. Other landmarks going dark include the Eiffel Tower, the Great Pyramids, the Acropolis and the Golden Gate Bridge.

Public safety lighting will remain turned on.
