New York Landmarks Shutting Out the Lights for One Hour This Evening


The Empire State Building, U.N. Headquarters, the New York Public Library, and Times Square will go without light between 8:30 to 9:30 tonight as part of the Wildlife Fund’s fifth-annual “Earth Hour” event, to raise awareness about climate change and conserve energy. So you should either hit the switch, too, or head to the library and run around the place in darkness. [Runnin’ Scared/VV, Slate]
