World Trade Center Lights in Honor of Elie Wiesel

The lights of One World Trade Center’s 408-foot spire were lit up Sunday night in the blue and white colors of the Israeli flag to honor the life of Nobel laureate and Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel, who passed away the day before. “It is fitting that the spire of One World Trade Center, which was built as a response to terrorism, be lit in honor of a man who spent his life fighting hate,” Gov. Andrew Cuomo said in a statement. (Kevin P. Coughlin/Office of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo)
