#TTFCovid19: A giant red siren light atop the Empire State Building that appears revolving is freaking some New Yorkers out, with many saying it looks like the city is panicking.  

But according to building officials, the display that began at 9pm last night was to represent “the heartbeat of America for heroic emergency workers on the front line of the fight.”

One twitter user wrote, “I mean, if the hospital in Central Park wasn’t stressing you out enough….the Empire State Building is now red like blood, you know.”

Another said, “Turning the Empire State Building into a massive flashing siren was either a stroke of artistic genius or a seriously intense way of panicking people.”

New York has been the epicentre of the Covid-19 outbreak in the United States, with 138 deaths and 4,319 new cases on Monday alone.

The siren display has received mixed reactions, with some calling it a powerful show of solidarity, while others say it has left them feeling more anxious than before.

One twitter user wrote, “I mean, if the hospital in Central Park wasn’t stressing you out enough….the Empire State Building is now red like blood, you know.”

Another said, “Turning the Empire State Building into a massive flashing siren was either a stroke of artistic genius or a seriously intense way of panicking people.”

Yet another suggested that the building should maintain its signature white lights amid the crisis.

“Just make it a normal Empire State Building. Nice, soothing white. A symbol of New York. Our buildings do not need to look like they are also panicking.”

Another added, “We know we’ve really screwed things up when the empire state building gets mad.”
