13 State Landmarks to be Lit Blue and Gold

Firework Displays to begin at 9:15PM Across the State in Celebration of Reaching COVID-19 Milestone

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that landmarks across the state will be lit blue and gold on June 15 in celebration of reaching 70 percent of New York adults receiving their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. In addition to these lightings, firework displays will be held at ten sites across the state beginning at 9:15pm.

“472 days ago, it was impossible to fathom that 70 percent of New York’s adults would have received their first COVID vaccination by this point. What felt years away has been accomplished in less than one,” Governor Cuomo said. “As we celebrate lifting restrictions and resuming our reimagined normal, we also reflect on the hard work of New York State’s essential workers and we remember those we lost. New Yorkers have always been tough, but this last year has proven just how tough they are. Congratulations, New Yorkers, on all that your hard work has accomplished.”

The following landmarks will be lit in blue and gold tonight, June 15, in honor of reaching this COVID milestone:

  • Empire State Building
  • One World Trade Center
  • Governor Mario M. Cuomo Bridge
