Empire State Building: Lights up for Mardi Gras

On my way home from work, I observed the Empire State building.  Tonight, it lights up with the beautiful and vibrant colors, purple, green and gold in honor of Mardi Gras (Fat Tuesday), the famous festival celebrated in New Orleans every year.  New Orleans is a dear city to me.  I lived in Louisiana a few years ago, and while at first I was a little home sick, I quickly made friends who made me feel at home.  It is true what they say about “southern hospitality.”  The people in Louisiana are warm and friendly.  The food is exquisiteness… from the craw-fish  to the jambalaya, to the you name it dish.  So on that note, here are a few pictures I took of the Empire State building welcoming Mardi Gras.
