Photo of the Week: Back-up Plan

Photo of the Week


The Empire State Building unveiled its new $12.5 million Art Deco lobby this week, designed by architect Frank Prial.

We had originally planned to feature the Building’s display of green Thursday night, for the 70th anniversary of The Wizard of Oz (and much to the delight of Iranian activists opposing Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s visit to our fair city this week). However, the powers that be at ESB lost their nerve, and last night’s color was decidedly red.
