Empire State Building Lights up in Chicago Cubs Colors After Historic World Series Win

The Empire State Building donned the colors of the Chicago Cubs on Thursday morning after the team's World Series win. 

The Cubs won a nail-biting Game 7 in extra innings just before 1 a.m. in Cleveland and the Empire State Building's official Twitter account announced the tribute a short time later. 

"Congratulations to the @Cubs, champions of the 2016 #WorldSeries! Our lights are now sparkling in red & blue in the team's honor," the tweet says. 

Since the Cubs and Indians share red, white and blue team colors, Indians fans can look up at the Empire State Building and take pride in knowing their team was part of an unforgettable World Series.
