Empire State Building lit in red, blue for New York primary

The Empire State Building got in on the primary day excitement.

The Empire State Building went political Tuesday night for the New York presidential primary.

The Empire State Building tweeted that the lighting was in partnership with CNN’s primary coverage.

The tower was lit in red after CNN had projected Donald Trump as the Republican winner and dark blue after Hillary Clinton was projected the Democratic winner.

The tower was also lit in both blue and red throughout the night.
