Monday night, the Empire State Building lit up its upper tower sections in California’s state colors, blue and gold, in sympathy for victims and other affected by California’s wildfires. The building’s official Instagram account posted a photo of the building at dusk showing the beautiful color combo, saying the building would be lit “in sympathy for the victims of those affected by the California wildfires.”
