"This year's lighting of the Empire State Building is very special for us, as it symbolizes the long-awaited return of Jets fans to MetLife Stadium," said Tim Kemp, New York Jets Vice President of Marketing. "After playing last season without fans in the building, we couldn't think of a better way to celebrate this moment than illuminating the New York City sky from one of the most famous buildings in the world."
