As is tradition, the Empire State Building – the most beautiful skyscraper in the world – was illuminated in green to mark Eid al Fitr. Of course, in 2015, this is announced via the official twitter account 🙂

Ignore the knee-biter islamophobes and just take a moment, as a proud American and a proud Muslim, to appreciate the beauty of this building and the graciousness of this tradition.

(Also, there are some nice photos of the ESB Eid colors on Flickr)
