NYC Landmarks50 Alliance was created to engage, inform and educate the public about the importance of the passage of the New York City Landmarks Preservation Law (19 April, 1965) and celebrate and commemorate its 50th anniversary.
On April 15, 2015 at sunset, the Empire State Building was lit in the colors of the New York City Flag--orange, white and blue--to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the NYC Landmarks Law. Thank you Empire State Building!
