Day 210: New York Skyline Olympic Colors - July 28. Curing the Olympic Games, the Empire State Building will be lit in the colors of countries participating in the Games. Last night the countries acknowledged were China (Red, Yellow, Red) on the West side, India on the East side, France on the North side and Portugal on the South side. Wish I had a way to get a photo of every country. If viewed in very large size, you can see a tiny bit of the colors on the North and South sides.
