Chinese Consul2 General in New York Huang Ping, together with John B. Kessler, president of the Empire State Realty Trust Inc., flipped3 the switch to light a model of the building on Friday in the lobby of the building.
 
Huang said that the Empire State Building's lighting4 of Lunar New Year serves as a symbol of the friendship between the peoples of the United States and China.
 
"Last year, more than 1.1 million Chinese tourists visited New York City, and the Empire State Building is one of the 'must-see' icons5 for all of them," he said.
 
2019 is the Year of the Pig according to the Chinese zodiac. A window display featuring pigs designed by China Arts and Entertainment Group has also been installed in the building's lobby windows on the Fifth Avenue.
