Earth Hour New York: Skyline Goes Dark, Kind Of

This time the blackout was for a good reason.

Unlike the great New York City blackout of 1977 (and the one in 2003), buildings went dark Saturday as part of Earth Hour 2010.

From 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., buildings all across town from the Empire State Building to the neon lights of Broadway were dimmed to support action on climate change.

Check out the photos below to see how well New York did in getting the message out.
