The Empire State Building will celebrate the 2012 Belmont Stakes on Thursday, June 7, 2012 by illuminating its world-famous tower lights in the colors of I’ll Have Another.

The building’s north and south sides will shine purple and white to cheer on Triple Crown hopeful I’ll Have Another, seeking to become the 12th Triple Crown Champion. The building’s east and west sides will illuminate green and white in honor of the 2012 Belmont Stakes, the third leg of the Triple Crown, according to NYRA Press.

Soaring 1,454 feet above Midtown Manhattan (from base to antenna), the Empire State Building is the “World’s Most Famous Office Building.” With new investments in infrastructure, public areas and amenities, the Empire State Building has attracted tenants in a diverse array of industries from around the world. The skyscraper’s robust broadcasting technology supports all major television and FM radio stations in the New York metropolitan market. The Empire State Building was named America’s favorite building in a poll conducted by the American Institute of Architects.
